We went to the Spaceport as part of the Merseyside ferries offer, this was a trip for my sons birthday. He loves all things space, but we left feeling a little bit disappointed. The lower section has plenty of information about the solar system but the upstairs section was very plastic and disappointing. There is also no cafe for food... More

We visited here from a package Mersey ferry tour, but found it to be disappointing. There were lots of interactive stations to teach about the solor system the sun, the moon and the stars . But I was disappointed in the Si fi section. This area looked very plastic and the costumes which were supposed to be from historical TV... More

Visited here with youngest son, he loved the place and we have been back since! The Doctor who display and the Wallace and Grommit display were really good! Very interactive, with enough to keep the little ones amused. Well worth a visit.

I was expecting a bit more a lot of the items weren't functioning so were a waste of time. One lady was really disappointed after raving about her visit 3-4 years ago to her 3 grandchildren there were no highlights and she spent less than 1/2 a hour there

My family (2 adults, 2 young boys) had been in 2010 and thought it was excellent. Since then, it seems, nothing has been spent on the attraction. Around half of the interactive exhibits no longer interacted, the visuals of anything audiovisual had faded, and the special effects in the wormhole were non-existent. What a let down. I felt very sorry... More

Do not waste your money! Visited with children aged 5, 10 and 14. This did not appeal to any of them. It's all very tired and in dire need of an update. Their was also a very dubious smell. Couldn't wait to leave. The planetarium was the most disappointing. Just a rubbish cinema to be honest. The whole experience was... More

Went on the ferry as a combined ticket and was genuinely surprised. We played on the ride and saw the astronaut show, my kids made dr who screwdrivers that lit up and then charged around the place attacking all the dr who monsters, though the cinema upstairs was pretty boring and looked like home movies. We enjoyed the day and... More

The weather was lousy, so looked for an indoor attraction, never been before but was quite surprised, with three kids in tow it ticked a few boxes. Ok so some of the displays were not working, but the kids moved on and we played a quiz show. The simulator was ok and we did it twice and the space show... More

We took this as part of a ferry trip. Only good thing to say is that it is located adjacent to the ferry terminal. You begin by watching some very very old tv's mounted flat on a central table in a small room showing a blurry ancient cartoon. You have to queue to get in here and what you see... More
