Expedition Space is a presenter-led live show.

Come with us on an epic voyage of discovery through the stars and planets of our Solar System. Begin your Expedition Space mission on Earth. Discover more about the constellations we see in the night sky, before launching into orbit and exploring the wonders of space.

Accessibility information for Expedition Space

The Planetarium is accessible so everyone can have a special experience here. Planetarium shows are unusual and exciting experiences.  All our shows are relaxed and fun with calm presentations. We call them 'chatterbox shows'.  If you want to call out, ask questions or swap ideas with your group about what you can see, go right ahead.

It's not super dark and you can move around, go out and come back in if you like. If you have a wheelchair, we have spaces for you to sit with seats for your family and friends. The stairs have lights to make them easy to see. 

We've got super 3D printed models and NASA's official tactile books. You can use them when you watch the show. We also have an induction loop. Sensitive to loud noises? You can borrow ear defenders from us before the show starts.

***On Friday 23rd December a British Sign Language interpreter will be signing during the 4.15pm show. On Saturday, 21st January 2023 a British Sign Language interpreter will be signing during the 10.15am and 4pm shows. Talk to our Accessibility team so we can reserve a seat for you near the front.***
