Ticket prices and information

We're open!

Tickets are on sale now for all dates up to Sunday 4 July. Popular sessions are selling out quickly, so book now to avoid disappointment.

Everyone, including members, will need to book tickets ahead of visiting. It will no longer be possible to walk up and buy tickets at the venue.

The easiest way to book is online and you'll be asked to select a 30 minute arrival slot when booking to help us safely manage capacity.

Tickets for dates past the 4 July, including the summer holidays, will go on sale towards the end of June. Sign up to our mailing list for the latest updates.

Keeping everyone safe

To help keep everyone safe we’ve put lots of measures in place to ensure our venue is clean, well ventilated, spacious and safe. 

Here’s what you can expect: 

  • We’re significantly limiting the number of visitors in the venue. It'll feel quite different to what you might be used to - it'll be a lot quieter and you'll have lots of space to move freely throughout the exhibits. 
  • You’ll need to book a timed entry slot.
  • Our staff will be wearing face masks (and you’ll need to wear them too). 
  • You'll see lots of hand sanitiser stations around the venue.
  • We’ve increased cleaning throughout the venue (including exhibition floor and toilets) and are using a disinfectant “Fogging” system. 
  • Our Foyer will look a bit different, with self-scan tickets points and the main desk and till points moved. 
  • Some spaces and activities where there are staff-led activities are available to one family or support bubble at a time. You’ll see signage at the entrance to these spaces.

Need to know

  • Please add Planetarium tickets to your shopping basket at the same time as general admission. Unfortunately it's not possible to add them onto your booking at a later date
  • 2D shows are designed especially for under 6s. For health reasons, under 6s aren't able to view 3D shows. 
  • Under 3s go free, but they'll still need a seat booking
  • Each show lasts 30 mins
  • To keep everyone safe, we've introduced a number of safety measures in the Planetarium. This includes significantly reduced capacity to allow plenty of space between bubbles.
  • Shows are led by our expert presenters (from a distance!)

Hello! Community Weekends

These free weekends give families and community groups, who may not otherwise have a chance to visit, to explore We The Curious together for free.

We're currently looking at when we may be able to run these again. Watch this space!
