Our family-friendly inflatable planetarium will transport you and young explorers across the cosmos.

Using footage from the Royal Observatory Greenwich and vibrant space-inspired imagery, this unique experience will stimulate children's senses and ignite their curiosity about outer space. You will be immersed in this cosmic vision-scape for 20 minutes.

The show content is primarily aimed at astronauts aged 0-5, or older children with special education needs, but older siblings and visitors are more than welcome to join the adventure. Our expert astronomers will be on hand to provide some accompanying information for older space farers.
