National Space Centre

The UK's largest space attraction, the National Space Centre in Leicester combines informative exhibitions with thrilling interactive displays.

Distinguished by its futuristic 42-metre rocket tower, the National Space Centre has five themed galleries displaying space rockets, satellites and capsules and covers topics such as the formation of the universe and how space exploration impacts on earth. The Space Theatre transports visitors across galaxies to explore black holes and witness the birth of the sun, all under a high-tech dome.

Human Spaceflight: Lunar Base, an interactive exhibition testing the mental and physical requirements for space travel, culminates in a 3D mission through the solar system to the ice moon Europa.
