Starry Session for Steampunk Festival
We would like to invite all those attending Kirkcudbright’s first ever Steampunk Weekend to join us for a journey through the stars.
During the live planetarium show, you will learn about our regions’ dark skies and explore constellations before flying through our solar system.
Following the live show we will screen ‘We Are Stars’, an award-winning planetarium film produced by the National Space Centre, UK and narrated by Andy Serkis that explores the secrets of our cosmic chemistry and our explosive origins.
Experience lasts 1hr 15mins and includes time spent in interactive space exhibit area.
Tickets are £10 and we recommend booking online in advance.
