Crawl into the darkened dome and discover the worlds that glitter in our night sky...

Our Earth, our Sun, our solar system and our place in space. A fantastic introduction to one of the most inspiring topics, this is an interactive guide to our local neighbourhood and beyond with the opportunity to ask big questions, explore interests and learn how to spot the constellations in the sky tonight.

Come along to one of our exciting Explorer Dome sessions on Thursday, 15 August:

  • 10:15 - 11:15 Fully Booked
  • 11:30 - 12:30 Fully Booked
  • 13:00 - 14:00 Fully Booked


The Wonder of Space costs £5.50 per person. Tickets can be purchased for adults, and children aged 4 years and above. Due to the nature of the event, The Wonder of Space is not suitable for children under 4 years old, or babes in arms.

Children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or responsible adult who knows them, over the age of 18.

The Wonder of Space is a standalone event and does not include admission to STEAM. Why not make a day of it and purchase an admission ticket to the Museum too? You will also benefit from our fantastic Kids For a Quid offer, running throughout the summer holidays!
