Visitors to Dynamic Earth are one giant leap closer to outer space discovery, with the launch of new activities to mark the 50th anniversary of the Apollo moon landings.

Budding astronauts of all ages are invited to the visitor attraction to learn the epic story of humanity’s first voyage to another world, through interactive and fun family activities and demos.

On 18 June, kids and adults alike are invited to the venue to join astronomy experts from the Royal Observatory for an out of this world evening. Visitors can then top off all the excitement by grabbing drinks and popcorn and heading to Dynamic Earth’s renowned ShowDome cinema to watch the moon landings in spectacular 360⁰ with brand new movie CAPCOM GO!

A second special weekend of activities, ‘Destination Moon’, will also take place from 19 to 22 July. From Friday to Monday, keen space explorers can watch explosive rocket launches, zoom across the lunar surface on a VR moon buggy and even create their own astronaut mission patch badge to take home.

Commenting on the jam-packed programme, Eilidh Massie, marketing director, said: “Our focus has always been on providing out of this world experiences, and what better way to do this than by telling the incredible story of the Apollo moon landings?

“We’re very excited to launch these activities to celebrate the 50th anniversary this year. There truly is something for the whole family to enjoy and we know there are lots of budding NASA astronauts out there just waiting to be inspired!”

In addition to the Destination Moon programme, regular Dynamic Earth features include the ever-popular real iceberg, a bone-shaking earthquake and the Deep Time Machine which takes visitors billions of years back in time.

The ‘Family Night: To the Moon and Back Again’ event takes place on Tuesday 18 June from 6pm. The ‘Destination Moon’ activities will be available over the weekend of Friday 19 July to Monday 22 July, and will run from 10am daily.
