    Between exhibitions, large spaces wasted.Not much history about Southend. Seemed starved.of cash. Could do with a cafe, not a destination. Would not take children there. Some exhibits too dark to see.  more »

    Booked via email for 2 children, 8 & 11 and 3 adults including a senior all for the family ticket of £16.00. I was advised about this by one of the staff, which was very helpful. On arrival all of the staff were friendly, helpful and had a really personal touch. The planetarium itself although small was informative and educational but fun for all ages, with things to look out for and even how to collect micro meteors. It was an hour long and flew by. All of us totally enjoyed the event and are still talking about it. Thank you very much Southend Planetarium. Visited November 2016

    Nice small museum, not much to see for young children. I remember there being a lot more to see from Years past. However this is free entry which is always great. 😃
