Following Government lockdown guidelines, the National Space Centre is currently closed. We hope to reopen after 17 May 2021, however, this is subject to change.

Please note that for the long term survival of the charity our teams are furloughed, so may be unable to respond to emails or messages.

Thank you for your support.
