Father's Day - National Space Centre

Happy Father's Day!

The daddy in our house has a serious interest in all things space and astronomical so we thought it was time to take him to the National Space Centre for the day and he had a fabulous time.

We arrived before it got too busy and entrance was smooth and fast.  The whole thing is set up into different sections on 2 floors with the planetarium in the centre.  We had a great time doing all the interactive exhibits.

Lots of learning about space both historically and in the modern day.  There are lots of replicas and real space debris and crafts.  There is so much to do its hard to remember all the bits we did.  We all loved the training to be an astronaut that after doing some tests tells you what your job would be on the spacecraft.  Lots of competition here to be the pilot - daddy won.

The planetarium show was really good.  We chose the one for older children but were still very disturbed by small children and babies messing about so a little disappointed but the overall show was excellent. 

You get to eat lunch in themed space booths which was fun and the food was really reasonable so again we were impressed.

We didn't manage to see everything as there is a lot to take in in one visit so we will definitely be going back.
