Open Days / Special Events

On public open days the Space Centre 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.

Occasionally we run sessions on specific topics or to coincide with astronomical event such as eclipses. We advertise these sessions in our calendar and Facebook page.

Private Bookings

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.
