There are lots of things for children to do, most of them hands on. The interactive zone was very good and we all learnt a lot. The film in the planetarium and the simulator were fantastic. We bought a special deal ticket combined with the mersey ferry so was reasonably priced.

Visited today 27th June with my friend and our two boys. We bought the combined tickets spaceport and ferry. On entry we watched a short video in a kind of pod and there was an astronaut model in the corner. After that we walked round various interactive games and attractiion - it was like a maze in there hope we... More

Really good and interesting day out, especially for kids. Easy parking, lots of disabled spaces. Good hands on activites for children. Clean vacilities, friendly staff. No café, only vending machines, but no real problem as plenty of choice in nearby New Brighton

I am disgusted to find out upon entry that essential carers of people with disabilities are now required to pay. even if proof is presented. I find it shocking to say the least that this service has been revoked especially since there was no indication of this prior to my visit.

We went ere on a Sunday with a 9 and 7 year old. It was great. We could have stayed for an easy 4 hours but we had to get the ferry back. The staff were helpful and walked around telling people when rides and activities were on. There's a hands- on area upstairs and adults can leave the kids... More

We went to Spaceport not expecting much due to poor reviews, but were pleasantly surprised. Some exhibitions were interesting and they had some interactive activities - particularly on the top floor which helped engage the kids and bring things to life. Quite a bit of the downstairs section could do with being lower to the ground for younger people, and... More

We had high hopes for this one and were disappointed. The highlight of the trip was my four year old son reeling of the names of the planets printed on the wall of the entrance lobby. It went downhill from there. The trip into space was awful and relied on nine low resolution displays to show an unconvincing video. The... More

Hamiltons has been taken over by new management and re-named. I visited today and found a light, bright, clean and tidy cafe. The staff were pleasant and welcoming. I experienced the afternoon tea which I couldn't fault. I left feeling happy and satisifed. I would say "well done" to the management and staff who have re-invented the place. I would... More
