The National Space Centre has a wide variety of interactive hands on galleries for your groups to explore during your visit. These galleries contain everything you need to know about Space including: How Stars are formed, What is gravity like on other planets? and what is it like to be an Astronaut?


"The children were highly enthused from the minute they arrived and were engaged throughout every activity. Their enjoyment continued throughout the visit, onto the coach and was brought back into the classroom." Ms de Bruyn, St Andrew's School, Weeley Smiley
