Today, we are open from 10.30am to 5.00pm

Come along throughout the day to explore our interactive exhibits and take part in today’s shows and activities.

No need to book!

Today’s shows:

11.00am Start Making Sense

Are there really only 5 senses, or are there others we never hear about? Find out more about the familiar senses, plus a few other, less familiar ones in our show.

14:30pm Safe in Space

How amazing to be an astronaut! Going into space would be pretty cool, but have you ever considered how astronauts stay safe in space? Have you wondered why is life in space different to our life on earth? Maybe you have thought about why astronauts wear space suits and what are they made of? Perhaps you have thought about why is coming back to earth so difficult?

Our ‘Safe in Space’ show explores all these questions and provides you the answers!

Make something a little different to take home with you!

12.30pm Rainbow Spinner

We will talk about how we see colours, including the colours of the rainbow.  Make your own rainbow spinner to take home and see what happens when you spin it fast!

16:00pm Make your own constellation viewer

With your own constellation viewer, you can discover the stars and see which constellations you can spot.
