Didn't quite know what to expect but the tour museum was brilliant. Wonderful for children. Next visit I will pay the extra to go on the ferry on the Mersey. The cine show was exilarating. Didn't expect the comfortable seats that were laid back to watch above. Well worth a visit.

With so much shown on TV about space history I guess all museums have a lot to live up to and need wow exhibits to justify their existence. Sadly Spaceport doesn't. The ferry trip to Liverpool we did after our very short visit entertained the kids much more and they probably learnt more history from what they saw.

I went to the space port with the kids, not worth the money at all. Kids were bored and so was I. There's a lot better attractions out there for similar prices. Never again

Absolutely fantastic way to spend a few hours my 8 yr old absolutely loved SPACEPORT. Although we went while it was free we are definatley going back it is well worth the entry fee as all staff are friendly and helpful.

We visited at half term and was amazed to find that it was free entry due to the ferry being out of action. We thought the exhibits were good and informative. There were quite a few interactive displays. One section was out of action but sometimes this happens and we certainly wouldn't complain as we hadn't paid anything to get... More

As it was free half term, came here 2 days on the run with my 9yr old son and young baby. Very informative, good interactive games, lots to do. My 9yr old loved it. Gift shop has lots of great souvenirs. Would recommend, esp on free days, not sure would pay the full admission price as seems a bit extortionate... More

Until the 6th November admittance is free because the Ferries are out of action so its worth visiting for free as the usual fee at £9 per adult is very expensive and not worth that amount. It is interesting but overall the scale of the museum is quite small and a few of the interactive displays were broken on the... More
