 Destination Space Station 

 We begin by traveling back in time to have a look at the early space explorers the wonderful Apollo astronauts. We then have a look at the night sky, learn how to navigate using the stars and how to find planets. Then BLAST OFF to the International Space Station to learn how astronauts live and work in space.

After the planetarium, try some solar observation (clear skies) or space themed VR Headsets (cloudy) and drop-in space themed arts and crafts. Suitable for big kids and little kids!

Tickets are £8.00 (adults and children). Admission to the house and Box walkways is not included. Advance booking essential.

 Show Times for Planetarium: 10:00 to 10:45, 10:45 to 11:30, 11:30 to 12:15, 12:15 to 13:00, 13:00 to 13:45, 13:45 to 14:30, 14:30 to 15:15, 15:15 to 16:00.

T. rex in Town

Wed 24th Apr 2019 - Wed 31st Jul 2019

Step back in time to the Cretaceous period and meet Trix, the first Tyrannosaurus Rex to go on display in Europe. The 66-million-year-old fossil of the carnivorous dinosaur was found in Montana, USA  in 2013 and is the centrepiece of this major exhibition supplied by Naturalis Biodiversity Center, Leiden, Netherlands. Trix is the only original skeleton of a T. rex currently touring anywhere in the world and one of the three most complete Tyrannosaurus Rex skeletons in the world. As well as having an opportunity to see one of the Tyrannosaurus Rex skeleton you can learn more about how dinosaurs lived through amazing interactive displays. Find out more about Trix's turbulent life from the information revealed by her bones, based on recent findings by an international research team of palaeontologists and geologists and look out for our events programme which will run throughout the exhibition period. There are also amazing interactive displays where you can try your hand at digging for fossils, have a go at designing your own T.rex and even dance like a dino! For the Scottish leg of Trix's tour there will also be fossilized dinosaur footprints on display, found on our very own Isle of Skye A bespoke exhibition shop is open 7 days a week, stocking an array of items suitable for Dino fans, young and old. After the exhibition relax in our Dino-themed cafe area with delicious street food from the Big Feed. We are expecting this event to be busy so please book tickets in advance if possible. Pre-booked tickets are available for timed entry to ensure any queuing for customers is minimised.   Book here.  Although timed entry is allocated on an hourly basis this will not prohibit customers from staying longer during quieter periods.  Tickets will also be available on the day at the Kelvin Hall reception desk. Glasgow is the last stop on Trix's European tour before she returns home to the Naturalis Biodiversity Center, Leiden, Netherlands. Don't miss this once in a lifetime opportunity to come face to face with a T. Rex!
