We visited as part of the Mersey Ferry / U Boat Story package and spent a couple of hours at Spaceport. My 3 boys (ages 4,6 and 9) enjoyed the hands on nature of the exhibits although there were a few that were not working. It kept them interested for a couple of hours before we got the 'Dazzle' ferry... More

I visited the Spaceport in June. my family and i were extremely disappointed, not only with the attraction itself but with the aftercare i have received from merseytravel. The Majority of the interactive stations were unserviceable which meant my children could not use them, and the information films and shows had the windows login/username displayed so were not running. there...

Purchased tickets online for this through the combined Ferry (very jazzy “Snowdrop“ on the day we used it), U boat and Spaceport experience - worked out at quite a good deal. After getting off the ferry at Seacombe you go up to the ferry terminal, go outside and Spaceport is just a couple of steps away. We thought that this... More

Went as part of a package with the ferry which doesn't make the price for all you get too bad. Spaceport is ok, it kept the children entertained for about 2 hours but don't go expecting to be able to spend much longer than that there. Staff were very friendly and helpful, most of the displays were working when we... More

We visited Spaceport during the summer holidays as part of the Mersey Experience, it cost £38.00 for a family of including use of the ferry and a visit to the U Boat. Spaceport is very clean and full of hands on activities, lots to do with space, time and planets. We visited the dome theatre and watched a 20 minute... More

First time we have visited this attraction and it was very informative and well presented. There were lots of experiments to do and hands on activity. probably wouldnt return but the visit was enjoyed by all.
