Live Skies takes place at 17:00 on Saturdays and Sundays, and every day during school holidays and bank holidays.
Sit under the stars in our planetarium to see the planets and constellations and learn where to find them in the night sky. There's a chance to ask questions at the end of the show.
During busy times, we request that you visit the planetarium, Science Theatre and Motion Ride once - this is to allow other visitors to enjoy the experience too. Thanks for your consideration.
