Space Place

A great place to reinforce learning for a child who has learnt about space. A lot of interactive areas for kids. I wouldn't recommend the 45min show (a movie and information about the stars and constellations) for young toddlers - should be a warning/recommendation I think. Other than that, was an awesome place for all ages. Great to spend a day exploring the gardens, tram riding and also Space Place ☺️

Wonderful place for adults and kids!

So much to see and the shows are amazing. We did 2 different shows and they were both really different, including the presenters at the end. Well worth a trip. We have already decided we will be back next time we visit Wellington.
