Convention was good but spaceport is really small and rather lacking. And for that price I want to be on the first Virgin Galactic... First class.

Spaceport is located at the Seacombe ferry terminal and we purchased a joint Mersey Cruise and entry ticket as we were staying in Liverpool and this provided better value. The downstairs section involved a lot of reading of facts about the planets in the solar system and as such would be unsuitable for children unable to read or comprehend the... More

Great topic. Story nicely told but not entirely current. Good clear interpretation and plenty interactives. Almost entirely geared to kids though. Did not hit the spot for us as adult visitors. Good do with more objects too. Fine for a family visit but not really a grown up experience.

The Spaceport exhibition is beginning to look a bit tired and could do with a facelift. Some of the exhibits were not working and the film was of very poor quality. The staff were friendly but in general it all needs an overhaul.

We were doing the rounds of attractions as we wanted somewhere interesting to take the grandchildren in the summer hols. Several of the exhibits were out of order including the Observatory and some were broken. The Space Dome show was very shabby, I thought there was something wrong with my eyesight as it was like looking through opaque glass and... More

Stopped off at the Spaceport at it was next to the Mersey Ferry Dock. Knowing that they had a Dr Who exhibition, it didn't take long to persuade the wife and kids. The space and science is well explained for all the family, especially the planetarium. The Dr Who exhibits were worth the entrance fee alone - informative and good... More

Spent 20 minutes on the ferry to get there and about 40 minutes looking around the exhibition. Some small interactive activities, majority is reading. We found this activity disappointing and a waste of our time spent in Liverpool. One activity was closed and the last planetarium was 1.30pm. Wouldn't recommend for young children, wouldn't recommend for older children. Wouldn't recommend... More
