Key info...

 Set aside: 10 mins
 Who is it perfect for:  Naughty Monsters is aimed at Under-7s and Time Traveller is aimed at 7+.
Daily show times are available on arrival.

We have two exciting planetarium shows running at Life.


The sky is full of mysteries. Where does the Sun go at night? Why does the Moon change shape? Where do rainbows come from? Could it be naughty monsters playing tricks in the sky, or can we explain everything that we see with science? Naughty Monsters in the Sky is an exciting planetarium show for young children to explore a sky full of mysteries!

Enter the planetarium to experience time travel! If you squeezed the history of the Universe into a year, what would happen when? Our second show, Tales of a Time Traveller, takes you on a journey through space and time. It is perfect for children aged 7+ and adults.







The planetarium is equipped with an analogue induction loop and has spaces for wheelchairs.

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