Space: Fact and Fiction exhibition

At Peterborough Museum

1 June - 7 October

Archived Event

FREE (except on special event days)

This summer, Peterborough Museum has an exciting exhibition that will be out of this world! Make sure you take a trip the city centre site to see Space: Fact and Fiction.

The exhibition, which is supported by the UK Space Agency, will highlight the UK’s role in space exploration and what it really takes to become an astronaut.

The whole family will enjoy exploring everything from moon rock to meteorites! Learn answers to all your burning questions, such as is time travel really possible? What is the difference between a meteor and an asteroid? And is there actually life on other planets?

Find out how science fiction has shaped the course of space technology and how the UK plays a leading role in space exploration today.

Don’t forget that 2013 is the 50th anniversary of popular TV series Doctor Who, so make sure you take the opportunity to see some fascinating sci-fi memorabilia. If you’re brave enough, you can meet some alien visitors too!

There will be an exciting and varied programme of associated events running alongside the exhibition, including a programme of expert lectures, family fun event days, and even a space-themed film festival!

Our Space exhibition runs from 1 June – 7 October during normal museum opening times (10am – 5pm). Entry to the museum is FREE except on special event days, where prices are £3 for adults, £2 for children, students and seniors, and £6 for families (under 5s and Heritage Pass Holders go FREE).
