Te Awamutu Space Centre is a museum and activity centre suitable for all ages. We love sharing our passion for space and astronomy but we're not just for space geeks! Most of our visitors arrive with no real interest in space but end up finding it more interesting and fun than they expected.
Adults (18+): $12.00
Children (3–17): $8.00
Infants (0–2): Free
Our exhibits and activities include:
- Information displays about space and astronomy.
- A collection of space-related artifacts and memorabilia.
- Interactive displays, games, toys, puzzles, etc.
- Virtual Reality.
- Telescopes, including a daytime solar telescope.
We open by appointment, so our opening hours depend on which bookings we have. To see which times are currently available, see the calendar and booking form.
Please DO NOT come to the centre without a booking and assume that you'll be able to come in. The only way to guarantee a visit is to book a time.
Important notice for teachers
We are beginning to take school visits again! However we have had to make some changes and we recommend that you contact us to talk about what's best for your school.
