Family Nights: To the Moon and Back Again

About Family Nights: To the Moon and Back Again

It's our nearest celestial neighbour, but only 24 humans have ever made the epic voyage to the Moon and back. With the help of astronomy experts Alastair Bruce, Martin Black, William D. Taylor from the Royal Observatory Edinburgh, celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Moon landings in our ShowDome. A very general guide on the 'what', the 'where' and the 'how' of visiting our nearest neighbour. Some Lego may be involved too... Then sit back, relax with some free popcorn and experience the moon landings in spectacular 360⁰ with our new movie CAPCOM GO!

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Family Nights: To the Moon and Back Again are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
