Mobile planetarium comes to The Collection museum


The Collection is taking a journey into space to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo moon landings.

On Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 February, the Lincoln museum will host the county’s only mobile planetarium.

Inside an inflatable dome, you can learn about the history of the moon landings and the brave astronauts who were the first to take that giant leap for mankind.

Paul Mason, visitor experience manager, said: “With this year marking the 50th anniversary of the Apollo moon landings, it’s the ideal time to learn more about our solar system.

“Gazing up at a projection of the night sky, the planetarium will take you on a trip around our neighbouring planets and satellites. It promises to be an out-of-this-world experience!”

Presentations last around 30 minutes and will take place every 40 minutes between 10am and 3pm. The event is suitable for adults and children over 5 years.
