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

It's ok, pretty standard stuff if you know anything about space, but great fun and educational for 7-13 yr old group, younger if they are very interested in space, there are alot of hands on exhibits BUT small kids just won't understand them at all. The new planetarium, well I don't know what the old one was like, but this... More
