The Science Museum
Exhibition Road, South Kensington, SW7 2DD
This July, to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the first Apollo Moon landing, the Science Museum invites you to a one-off, family-only, overnight space spectacular.
Discover what astronauts eat in space, hitch a ride and journey across the Moon in a lunar rover workshop or get hands-on in highly interactive drop-in sessions at this bumper sleepover. Plus, all the regular Astronights highlights will be here for you to enjoy including access to Wonderlab: The Equinor Gallery and an opportunity to sit back and relax with a space film in our IMAX 3D Cinema.
In addition to a packed schedule of space activities, each camper will receive a goody bag containing space-theme treats including limited edition pyjamas for the kids and NASA t-shirts for the adults.
This event takes place as part of the Science Museum’s Summer of Space festival.
