Museum of the Moon at Life Science Centre

Museum of the Moon at Life Science Centre

Ticketed event.

What better way to tell someone you love them to the moon and back than by standing beside, well, a giant moon installation. Life Science Centre have just launched their latest installation created by UK artist Luke Jerram and it is a guaranteed place to bring on a Valentine's Day swoon. You can visit the lunar marvel everyday of the week from 2 February 2019. Top Tip: If you would like to only visit the installation of the moon, you can get tickets from 4pm for a reduced price. Valentine's Day regular - Skating at Life - returns too so you can book a spin around the ice once you have wondered at the moon!

Not strictly on Valentine's Day, join Life for a Supermoon Supper and dine at the each of the moon with your loved one. Definitely a great way to share a romantic meal in a particularly unique surrounding.
