Too many of the interactive exhibits were broke is the reason I marked this attraction down. Apart from that it was a enjoyable couple of hours.

I took my family out for a day to Spaceport and was unfortunately very disappointed by the exhibition. My visit also served the purpose of checking out Spaceport for for future educational visits as I am a teacher who helps to coordinate a network of around 8 schools for regular Physics based trips and boy, was I glad I checked...

The spaceport is in a renovated part of the Mersey ferries terminal and we visited it due to the changeable weather over half term. We took our 3 year old son and his two cousins aged 5 and 9 hoping that there would be enough to hold their interest for a couple of hours. Our son was intrigued by the... More

My wife and I took our two grandchildren to Spaceport and were utterly disgusted and so very dissapointed in what we had payed to see. We could have been in and out within 5 minutes thats how small and uninteresting the displays were. There was a model of Wall ee made out of cardboard, so poor. The models were rubbish... More

I have been meanng to go to spaceport for several years and just not had the chance. I was disappointed! The occasional display was broken. There weren't enough staff around to help people understand and use exhibits. Staff also needed to help other adults keep their offspring from climbing on displays and banging buttons. The simulator was good. The space... More

We visited with our 5 yr old and 7 month old. 5 yr old had just been studying space at school, so we thought this would be good for reinforcing what he'd learned in a more interactive way. However, we were very disappointed to find that most of the interactive exhibits weren't working. He had no interest in just looking... More
