All ages can be space-age explorers at It’s Not Rocket Science by ENESS because you’re never too young or old to be beguiled by the universe. It’s Not Rocket Science is a voyage of discovery into the wonders of space through a collection of characters that blur the boundaries between art and science. 

Meet billion-year-old baby moonrocks, stand under awe-inspiring rockets – some up to 6 metres tall! – step inside a space observatory to marvel at twinkling constellations and peer into kaleidoscopic space probes to unearth the stories they’ve collected. Throughout the journey you’ll learn fascinating facts and marvel at beautiful sculptures – a mentally stimulating and visually inspiring day for all the family!


From  4 July – 8 July and 11 July – 15 July, little explorers can enter the space station between 10am and 1pm. Special space staff will be on hand to assist in space suit dress-ups and photo moments in front of interstellar backdrops. See workshop details below.
