  • All children attending the event must be supervised and accompanied by their grown-ups at all times. 

Accessibility information

All our exhibits are interactive. That means you can enjoy them using your senses. Touch them, watch them, hear them. The exhibits are low down so everyone can reach them.

Planetarium shows can be unusual and exciting experiences. All our shows are relaxed and fun with calm presentations. If you want to call out, ask questions or swap ideas 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 friends. The stairs have lights to make them easy to see.

If you or your child has SEND needs, we can help create a really magical experience. Just talk to our accessibility team – we're here to help.
