Moonlight Explorers

Discover the magical relationship between us and the Moon and find your own connection!

Families can explore The Moon exhibition together in a relaxed environment. Lighting will be increased and noise reduced where possible to ensure the best experience.

The exhibition will be accompanied by free, drop in craft activies, the chance to ask questions of an astronomer from the Royal Observatory, trail around the exhibition and a quiet space.

Fun Palaces

Join us for a festival full of spectacular performances and unusual activities as communities take over the Museum to showcase their marvellous talents and curious interests.

We have been working alongside a group of brilliant volunteers from local communities, who have been busy at work designing the Fun Palaces Festival for 2019 (as well as the outstanding poster and imagery for the event!).

Many months of dedication have resulted in a truly unique day of activities for all to enjoy.
