Really great enjoyable day, the staff were super friendly not only in person but over the phone before we arrived. The dome experience is a must, the kids loved it. Educational and fun at the same time!

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

3, 2, 1... we've reached the Spaceport, and the adventure begins! Located on the banks of the river Mersey, and only a convenient 100 metres or so away from the Seacombe ferry stop (where ferries can be caught across the river to Liverpool), the Spaceport is easily accessed and is a brilliant family day out for anyone wanting to discover...

Took my 2 kids age 4 and 9 during school holidays. Luckily we used Tesco vouchers, I'd have been cross if I'd paid the full entrance price! Lots of the interactive activities were broken or it wasn't easy to work out how to use them. The planetarium show was so blurred and feint that you could hardly make out what... More

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.
