Family Learning

Families can follow the Amazing Astronomy trail (additional £1) which is full of quiz questions about William and Caroline’s fascinating discoveries.

In the gallery you can build amazing space creations with our Space Lego ™ and ‘Women of NASA’ Lego ™. Or you can take a break and look through our brilliant children’s books all about astronomy.

During school holidays we usually have additional drop in activities or family workshops where you can try your hand at activities ranging from moon crafts to infrared exploration – check our what’s on page for details.

Look out especially for our special day and night time sessions with telescopes – a chance to meet expert astronomers who can help you spot stars, planets and even (safely!) features on the sun.
