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

Join the Royal Observatory Astronomers for a series of activity packages for older children that include a planetarium show, an interactive VR experience and a chance to talk to our astronomers.

Start your orientation in our state of the art digital planetarium to visit some popular destinations within our Solar System and beyond. Continue your mission with a virtual step onto the Moon in our virtual reality activity, to feel what it’s like to stand on the lunar surface. This will be combined with rock handling and a chance to ask astronomers about the possibility of humans returning to the Moon and building lunar bases.

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.
