Destination Space: July School Holidays

What’s On these holidays?

Come visit Science Space this July for DESTINATION SPACE, our July School Holiday theme. In honour of the 50th anniversary of the moon landing and in celebration of our 30th birthday we are going big this time to celebrate all things space. From Space Camps to moonwalks and virtual space tours in between, your astronaut in training won’t be able to get enough.

SPECIAL INSTALLATION: On top of all this, we will be bringing the Moon to you!  Yep, that’s right, we are installing our very own giant replica Moon feature to be on display in our atrium for the entire month of July.

So, suit up space adventurers and be sure to drop in a get your own space selfie at Science Space!

Extended weekday hours during July holidays 9am -4pm (open 10am-4pm weekends)
