This Easter our egg will be Apollo shaped with a BRAND-NEW Planetarium show!

Join the National Space Centre for a journey that, 50 years ago, landed humans on the Moon.

The Apollo space programme is one of the greatest achievements of humankind. It saw one giant leap in not only exploration, but also science that has impacted on our lives more often than we realise.

Thirty-two astronauts were assigned to fly in the Apollo manned lunar landing program. Twenty-four of them, flying on nine different missions, reached an orbit around the Moon and twelve stepped onto the lunar surface.

Come and discover what it took to get there and what it will take to go back.
