Event details

Our Earth is a welcoming place for us humans, but what might it be like on different, alien, worlds?

​Humans love exploring – and we’re not stopping at our own planet! Although we can’t travel to most other worlds (yet!), in the immersive environment of our planetarium we can experience what it might be like.

Dive through Saturn’s rings, fly above the Martian surface and find out what it’s like to walk on moons.

Please note that during term time before 2pm the planetarium can be busy with school visits. To avoid disappointment, please call us on the day of your visit.
 
The planetarium is equipped with an analogue induction loop and has spaces for wheelchairs.
 
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.
