From July 20 families can embark on a mission to tour the galaxy on-board Explorer:Space, a brand new interactive space zone.
Explorer:Space is an immersive space experience that will take families on an epic adventure through the universe. This new, dramatic staff-led zone includes amazing hands-on exhibits, covering everything from meteorites to stardust, robots to coding and atmospheric pressure to human space flight.
“Explorer:Space is a permanent new addition for the Science Centre designed to wow families and ignite their curiosity in space. It is the biggest investment we’ve made since the opening of our planetarium in 2008,” said Ben Ward, CEO of Winchester Science Centre.
To complement the new zone, the centre’s Curiosity Team will deliver space-themed activities and a brand new live science show. Destination Space, from July 20 to September 3 will allow visitors to explore the story and science of satellites, complete with fiery demonstrations and bottle rocket launches.
Explorer:Space and the summer holiday space-themed activities are included in the cost of general admission. The Destination Space live shows will run daily at 11 am, noon, 1 pm and 2 pm inside the Space Marquee – free tickets can be reserved online in advance. New prices from July 16 provide a 25% discount on general admission when booking online at least three days in advance.
