Space – perhaps you’ve always wanted to know more, but were afraid to ask?

We can help, introducing you to some stellar characters and constellations in the winter sky. We let you in on some of the secrets of star-life, how they are born and how they die. Then we’ll line up the planets of our solar system for you to meet. There’ll be black holes, red dwarfs, galaxies and supernovae. Space is cold, dark and empty. Mostly. But the bits in between the cold dark and empty nothingness are endlessly fascinating.

During busy times, we request that you visit the planetarium, Science Theatre and Motion Ride once - this is to allow other visitors to enjoy the experience too. Thanks for your consideration.
