Group Bookings for Senior Citizens
We host regular visits for groups of older customers, e.g. social groups, tours, retirement villages, rest homes, etc. A typical visit begins with a presentation that lasts up to 30 minutes (or however long you want). After that, the group is free to wander around the museum, looking at displays and trying interactive activities.Cost: $10 per person. Sorry, we do not have discounts — this price is already as cheap as we can sustain. Bookings outside our normal opening hours have a minimum charge of $100.00.
Times / Numbers: Bookings can be made for any time of day or night. Most groups comprise about 20-30 people; we can accommodate up to about 60.
Directions & Parking: See our map. Cars and vans can park on the grass beside the main building or on Whitmore Street. Buses can park on any of the three roads surrounding the Space Centre. Your bus driver may like to drive around the whole triangular block before choosing exactly where to park (it's a small block).
Food / Catering: We don't offer catering but there are cafés nearby. You're also welcome to bring your own food. We have a kitchen with a Zip for boiling water, a microwave oven, and tables and chairs for eating. Please let us know in advance if you require these facilities.
Telescopes: It is sometimes possible for us to look through the telescopes but due to weather, street lights and other factors, it's only about a third of the time.
- There are two toilets in the main building. The female toilet doubles as the disabled toilet.
- The building is accessible to wheelchairs.
- Please let us know about any guests with special needs.
