Join us to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the very last person to walk on the moon.

See real Moon rock, discover the science and mythology behind our nearest neighbour; re-live historic moments in lunar discovery and exploration; and discover 5,000 years of mankind’s fascination with our celestial neighbour, from the Stone Age to the Space Age.

Did you know a Russian robot landed on the Moon before the American astronauts?
Have you ever wondered why a cow jumped over the Moon in nursery rhyme?
Does moonlight really make you go mad?

Discover all this and more in this fascinating exhibition suitable for all ages.

A national touring exhibition by Bespoke Scientific.

Join us for a summer of family fun, learning about the moon and outer space. Look out for our summer programme of space themed events, crafts, and science activities.

School groups welcome.
