Out Of This World: Mars
The Red Planet awaits as we explore where only robots have gone before!
In this morning of science and discovery, we'll begin by travelling across the solar system in our planetarium with a special focus on our neighbour, the planet Mars. Then, join us for an interactive workshop as we discover more about this fascinating world that at one time was not so different from our own.
Recommended for ages 7+

Plan your visit
The morning will begin with a planetarium show, lasting 30 minutes. Following this, there will be a workshop, lasting up to 45 minutes.
The planetarium is part of the Royal Observatory, at the top of a hill with spectacular views across London. Please allow enough time to get to us and aim to arrive at least 15 minutes before the planetarium show’s start time, as latecomers cannot be admitted. Any latecomers will be able to join in with the workshop after the planetarium show though.
Pushchairs are not allowed into the planetarium itself but there is a designated buggy park in the foyer.
You do not need a Royal Observatory ticket to visit the Planetarium. However, if you would also like to visit the historic observatory then you can book a separate ticket here.
Companions to visitors with disabilities are entitled to free admission. Please contact the Bookings Team to pre-book on 020 8312 6608 or email Bookings@rmg.co.uk.
