planets and a rocket

Take a journey through the Cosmos with stargazing expert Richard Darn.

From spotting ancient constellations to finding galaxies, this is a fun, practical session to take your astro knowledge on to a new level!

You will even get the chance to handle space rocks over four billion years old!

If the sun is out we’ll even have a go at safe solar observing.

With a chance to make and launch your own rocket and 10% off a Dark Skies themed menu at the Firebox cafe, this is great for kids over 6 and adults!

A free event for children but they are to be accompanied by an adult paying the museum admission fee.
