Open Days / Special Events
During our open days the space room is open for casual visitors. This is ideal if you want to spend as much time as you like looking through the displays and playing with the interactive features. Staff are available to answer questions and chat about space. Videos are shown at regular intervals throughout the day.
We take bookings for up to 100 people. The cost is the same as for casual visits, however you get a free presentation and/or tour when you book 20 or more people. We can do sessions any day of the week, day or night, but please book well in advance.
The Space Centre is perfect for birthday parties.
