Our family events are aimed to be fun and interesting to everyone, including families with younger children they are the only events that offer reduced family tickets (inc. two adults and two children). Recommended ages are 5 years old and upwards. Please be aware all children under 16 yrs must be accompanied by an adult, all of whom must have a ticket. 

Space Kids is one of our most popular events for parents and their young scientists. These events are designed to inspire, enthuse and educate, in a way the youngsters will never forget.

There will be a full tour of our two observatories and a chance to see, play with and drive our big telescopes! There may be time for us to touch real rocks from space, meteorites from the Moon, Mars and the asteroid belt, some of which are even older than the planet you're stood on right now

Then rocket making, we turn Kielder in to mission control, and teach you how to build and launch your own rockets. A fun packed two hours of wonder and real discovery 

Our Young Explorers event is designed to build on that passion of your young scientists and help encourage further learning by feeding their excitement for everything space related.

Throughout this event you and your family will be guided around our astronomical ark and discover our large aperture robotic telescopes, learn about how they work and why we use them, if weather permits you will even get to observe brighter objects through them.

Tickets must be booked in advance and we often sell out early, so please check our website for availability and to book: https://kielderobservatory.org/our-events
