The Exhibition

Upon arrival you will see the iconic Rocket Tower, but you may also see the top of the UK’s largest domed planetarium. Both of these are of course a must see for your visit, but around them are six further inspiring galleries to discover. Crammed full of space suits, rockets, satellites, meteorites and everything you would expect of a world class attraction, these galleries will make sure you have a full day of breathtaking discovery and interactive fun.Smiley
