The National Space Centre

The National Space Centre is the UK's largest attraction dedicated to space. It's a hands on, interactive journey through six main galleries, including Rocket Tower, 3D S.I.M. Ride and a 360 degree space theatre.
 
See space rockets, satellites and capsules and take a look at how we use space in a multitude of ways to enhance life on earth. Lunar Base 2025, is an interactive exhibit which will test your mental and physical ability to survive a long and dangerous voyage into deep space, and culminates in a stunning 3D mission to the ice moon Europa!
