Not the best of attractions I have been to in my eyes... The sculptures and replica models are quite tacky and quite unrealistic. Im guessing this place is mainly just for the kids, not enough interactive displays and did get very boring. Spending £9 each just for this was a waste of money and even if it was free I... More

Hi, thank you for your feedback, I’m sorry your visit did not meet your expectation. We do try to combine educational elements with fun space and sci-fi exhibits. I do hope you experienced our space dome theatre show and simulator ride which are very popular elements of the attraction. More

We visited here on 29 December 2014 with two boys aged 7 & 8. We all thoroughly enjoyed it. The three highlights of the attraction were all excellent i.e the entrance which felt like entering a real space ship a la Star Trek, the film in the planetarium ceiling which was not about stars at all - but about astronauts,...

I was very excited to visit, but did not find it good value for money. It was very disorganised and not enough interactive displays.

Totally over priced. Didn't spend more than 2 hours there. Best just for young kids really. Won't be recommending and won't be going back. Staff could not be bothered helping out. We're just sat chatting in reception. Shame really.

We had a 9th birthday party with 10 boys and it was fantastic. Food was delicious and party organiser was well planned. Boys really enjoyed themselves and great value for money.

Lots of information about the solar system and an exhibit with Dr Who characters including daleks and other movie legends such as terminator and predator. Enjoyed by both the adults and children in our party. Staff friendly and helpful. Free parking.

The children loved everything about it especially the simulator! This was an excellent trip to link with our space topic which gave the children lots... More

I recently visited here on a school trip. I was very impressed with the place. There is a big space auditorium with reclining seats. Downstairs there is also a space exhibition with lots of interactive activities to do. Upstairs there is an excellent Dr Who exhibition with the most lifelike Tom Baker model I've ever seen! There is also a... More

We visited this when we were staying in Liverpool. Couldn't believe how quiet it was. My two boys aged 7 and 9 had a lot of fun and were interested in all the information on the different planets. Lots of interactive models and a great ride on a space ship simulator. The robot exhibition was great and I was the... More
