Up, up and away!
27 July – 25 August

It’s 50 years since the first Moon landing, but we’re going much further back in time this summer to explore Edward Jenner’s pioneering work with balloons! Join us for trails, crafts and displays celebrating our first adventures in flying.

You’ll be able to take part in activities Saturdays to Wednesdays, from 27 July to 25 August. Activities are included in museum admission and all tickets are valid for 12 months (excludes Discovery Day on 26 August), so that means you can pay once and come back as many times as you want throughout the summer! Don’t forget to bring a picnic and relax on our lawn!

Usual admission charges apply. Last admission is at 4pm on all days. Click here for more information.
