We combined the Spaceport with a trip on the Mersey on the River Explorer and were certainly impressed with both. The Spaceport was great fun, very informative and the simulator Space Ride was a big hit. The staff were really friendly and helpfulMore

I visited her with my children aged 7, 9 and 11. They all really enjoyed it especially the simulator and theatre show. They also enjoyed all the interactive things to do. Passed away a couple of hours during the school holidays.

A lot of the information in the museum was severely outdated regarding space missions for example, but it was still a fun experience. Many parts of the museum were interactive, and we loved the planetarium show.

Just the spaceport? You can be done in an hour or you can take a few if you take time to read all the displays and go on the simulators/watch the videos.
