We arrived for opening, there was a small queue but once inside it seemed spacious enough to not realise how many were actually in the building, until lunch. The queue for a meal or drink was rather large. Our advice is do not plan for anything that day as there is so much to see and do inside. Afterwards take a walk around the park, hire a bike and cycle it, we hired what we thought was a distant memory from our childhood, a 4 wheeled 2 steering bike…it was so much fun (but hard work even on the smallest of hills).
To Enter the Morrisons Planetarium you need to get a ticket and they will inform you of the time to arrive. As it is such a popular event. Little mans ultimate Favourite was the hands on chance to do some science, making a meteorite.
Hope you enjoy the photos of the day
Finally we would give this venue a massive 9.5/10 the loss of .5 was due to the queues for drinks and food hall only.
