The National Space Centre is the UK’s largest visitor attraction dedicated to space and space exploration, welcoming around a quarter of a million visitors each year since its opening in June 2001.

The National Space Centre is the brain child of the University of Leicester and Leicester City Council and was the subject of joint bid to the Millennium Commission as a Landmark Millennium Project for the East Midlands.

Since then the centre has hosted an amazing variety of events raging from visits from legendary astronauts such as Buzz Aldrin, Helen Sharman, Michael Foale, and Piers Sellars to various events such as Star Wars and Doctor Who.

The National Space Centre continues to evolve through the development of new galleries, Space Theatre shows and experiences created for a diverse audience.
