Eureka! The National Children's Museum
Discovery Road, Halifax, HX1 2NE
Celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landings with a weekend packed with space activities. Take one small step to Eureka! this half term to celebrate 50 years since the Moon Landing… To coincide with the anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission we’ll be running our Moon Mission space show and inviting budding space explorers to take part in astronaut training.
Looking for space adventures?
Join us for our Moon Mission show, exploring how people first landed on the moon back in 1969 and what a remarkable achievement this was in the days when spacecraft had far less computing power than today’s average mobile phone. Find out what it was like to be on the moon, what we left up there, when we might go back and how the moon might be involved in deep space exploration in the future!
