Event details

Discover some of the scientific secrets of the Moon.


Narrated by BBC Radio 4’s science comedian Helen Keen, the planetarium show Moonstruck explores the brightest object in our night sky.

 

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.
