Exploring Space gallery tour

Join one of our amazing volunteer guides for an insightful tour of our Exploring Space gallery.

Discover space firsts such as Sputnik, Yuri Gagarin and the work of Sergei Koralev. Delve into an amazing history, bringing to life objects from our Exploring Space gallery.

Hear about some fascinating stories and objects such as:

  • Helen Sharman, who become the first Briton in space in 1991 and see the spacesuit she used during her mission to the Mir space station.
  • The Soyuz descent module that took astronaut Tim Peake to the International Space Station in 2015 and returned him safely to Earth.

Our volunteer guides are also delivering short 10–15 minute spotlight talks on their favourite objects and stories displayed in the gallery.
