Event details

We’re going up, up and away with a rocket-fuelled extravaganza for the school holidays!


Highlights include:

  • In the new live science theatre show Destination Space, find out about satellites built here in the North East that let you see our world in a new light.
  • Explore the Universe and beyond in Life’s new Space Zone and capture the moment with selfie opportunities in Mission Control, on the ISS toilet and with your face projected onto an astronaut floating high above.
  • Make your own airpowered rockets in the Making Studios.
  • Get up close to a real satellite that fits in the palm of your hand.
  • Experiment with rocket reactions in the Experiment Zone.
  • In the Tales of a Time Traveller planetarium show, discover why telling the time is not as easy as looking at a clock!
  • There’s also a special area for under-7s.
  • It’s your last chance to take a whirl on our ice rink! (Not included with science centre ticket.)
During busy times, we request that you visit the planetarium and Science Theatre once - this is to allow other visitors to enjoy the experience too. Thanks for your consideration.

Please note: the science centre will open at the earlier time of 9.00am Monday - Friday during February half-term.
