Our Moon-themed morning includes a planetarium show and immersive virtual reality activity.

Join our Royal Observatory Astronomers for a fun space-themed morning for older children that include a planetarium show, an interactive workshop and a chance to talk to our astronomers.
Start your orientation in our state of the art digital planetarium to learn about the phases of our celestial neighbour, the Moon. We'll also visit some other popular destinations within our Solar System and beyond. Continue your mission and take a virtual step onto the lunar surface with our virtual reality activity to feel what it’s like to be a moonwalker and describe your surroundings to your mission team members. This session includes rock handling for a tactile experience of how the surface of the Moon looks and feels up close! Late-comers cannot be admitted to the planetarium while the show is in progress for health and safety reasons due to the dark environment.

Please note the gates to the Royal Observatory Greenwich’s Astronomy Centre only open at 10am. On arrival please proceed to the planetarium. All children must be accompanied by a paying adult.
