If you’ve ever wondered what it’s really like in space, a visit to Liverpool’s Spaceport might be the closest you’ll get to answers, with a planetarium and a series of intergalactic galleries, exhibitions and multi-media displays. A fun choice for a family day out and a key stop on Liverpool’s hop-on hop-off Mersey River Explorer Cruises, Spaceport’s hands-on discovery zones and interactive exhibits are suitable for all ages.
One major Spaceport highlight is Sci-Fi Icons, a private collection of Star Wars memorabilia that includes character displays and vintage toys from as far back as 1977.
The Spaceport is located at the Seacombe Ferry Terminal in Birkenhead and is open daily from 10am-3pm on weekdays or 5pm on weekends. Adult admission is £9.50 and £6 for children.
