  • Great night, knowledgeable staff, really enjoyable, talk first then lots of chance to view through the various telescopes, staff more than happy to talk in all levels of details, they warn you it gets cold and it does! wrap up warm. Great to see the passion they have for space and you can see it inspires the visitors too
  • Really cool facility, we were lucky to get clear skies and staff were really knowledgeable and enthusiastic to explain things to us. Amazing night out! Thanks
