Euro Space Center
Space Museums • Member since 2012
The Euro Space Center was created by IDElux (Intercommunale d’Equipement Economique de la Province de Luxembourg), a cooperative company including the 44 municipalities of the province plus the province itself.
The Euro Space Center is a place meant to enable people to discover space, its exploration and its consequences on our everyday life. Since the day it opened in June 1991, the Euro Space Center has obtained a certain fame in the space and socio-educational fields. For young people, the general public, the press and the specialized circles (educational or industrial), it has become a reference as far as the divulgation of space technologies and sciences in Belgium are concerned.
Moreover, its educational programs for schools have received the recognition of the Ministers in charge of Education who, for several years, have sent teachers on secondment to lead the so-called “space classes.” Furthermore, the astronaut camps and the space initiation programs make the Euro Space Center a unique center of its kind in Europe. Finally, various leading companies specialized in high technology have chosen the ESC as a shop window for their products thanks to its high tech environment.
