Exploring Space family show

You’ll experience space and light in a whole new way with this interactive live show. It’s rocket-fuelled and out of this world!

Discover how we use telescopes, satellites and rockets to explore our universe. Find out how chemistry and colour can tell us about distant planets and stars. Then join British astronaut Tim Peake as he blasts off in his Soyuz rocket.

Suitable for families with children aged 7+.

Scheduled dates

Show times are subject to change—for the most up-to-date information, check with a member of staff when you arrive at the museum.

Spaces are limited, so make sure you’re in the gallery before the show begins, and listen out for the announcement from our Explainers.
