  • Went to 1pm with grandchildren... pity the dog story was from an Australian point of view... thought something could have been a little more home grown.... The second half was better but perhaps a little more passion and enthusiasm from the narrator 'astronomer' may gave made the show a little more alive. My grandson had some questions thatthe Mc said he would be available for. .. but disappeared straight after the show...😕
  • A great place to start stargazing career.....may need more multimedia display, the items in the shop a every expensive!
  • We always went here for school trips it was a fun experience
  • Excellent shows on planets, worth going to
