Journey into Space this Summer at Eden
Jul 27, 2017 @ 9:30 am - Sep 3, 2017 @ 8:00 pm£10 - £64
This summer, explore our solar system and uncover the secrets of the universe – all in one epic day out in Cornwall.
Train in the Astronaut Academy, take a Solar System Safari, discover freaky plants that are out of this world, meet space experts and encounter stranded aliens…
Solar System Safari
Explore the secrets of our solar system with our fully immersive Solar Safari experience. Your senses will be reeling from the incredible sights and sounds as you explore the unique environments of each planet before returning to planet Earth.
Eden Astronaut Academy
Have you got what it takes to be an Eden astronaut? Defy gravity on the inflatable moon walk, and take on mind-bending space puzzles and challenges designed to test your astronaut skills to the limit.
An alien spaceship has crash-landed at Eden, and its inhabitants are stranded here. Help us piece together the remains, then venture into the decontamination zone. We’re working on a way to communicate with these mysterious life-forms – can you help us de-code their signals and language? What would you ask an alien if you met one? We’d love to hear what you’d want to know.
Universe of Imagination
Take a trip around the universe of your imagination with space-themed storytelling, puppet shows and hands-on experiments.
Freaky Space Plants
To boldly grow… dare to search out freaky plants across the site, and find out about crops that we might want to grow in space in the future.
Meet the Experts
Join our friends from the UK Space Agency, European Space Agency and the National Space Academy for inspirational tales of space endeavours and exploration.
Space by night
We’re open until 8pm Monday to Thursday, so you can choose to visit us for the whole day or just stop by on your way home from the beach. Keep an eye on our website for other special space events – we may have some cosmic surprises in store.
We’ll be offering pre-bookable relaxed sessions for children with autism spectrum condition, sensory and communication needs or learning disabilities who may benefit from a more informal experience.
You can enjoy a Journey into Space at your own tempo in a more calm and gentle environment on the following Fridays and Sundays: 4, 6, 11, 13, 18, 20, 25 and 27 August and 1 September.
The sessions will start at 8am (our car parks will open at 7.45am) and will run until 9.30am when Eden opens to other visitors. Relaxed sessions will be available to book via this page soon.
