Celebrate 50 years since humans first landed on the moon by seeing a NEW space show and take part in astronaut training in a human gyroscope this May Half-Term.

Take one small step to Eureka! this half term to celebrate 50 years since the Moon Landing…

This May Half-Term we’ll be launching a brand new space show and inviting budding space explorers to take part in astronaut training including a human gyroscope. On every day from Saturday 25th May through to Sunday 2nd June.

Looking for half-term adventures?

Join us for our new Moon Mission show, exploring how people first landed on the moon back in 1969 and what a remarkable achievement this was in the days when spacecraft had far less computing power than today’s average mobile phone. Find out what it was like to be on the moon, what we left up there, when we might go back and how the moon might be involved in deep space exploration in the future!

We’ll also be opening a brand new interactive tech exhibition – don’t miss Digital Dimensions. It’s on the ground floor of our Spark gallery until November.

Eureka! Moon Mission activities are included in standard admission, or free to annual pass holders.
