Big Bang Bash

Friday 1 April

Join us for an out-of-this-world space party! Unleash your inner astronaut as you take a spacesuit selfie, help build a Mars colony from LEGO® bricks, send an encrypted message on a genuine Enigma machine and learn about the astrolabe whilst crafting one. Step inside our planetarium to discover the wonders of the solar system or take to the dance floor for the space themed Science Ceilidh. There’ll also be short talks from space experts including Mars One finalist Ryan MacDonald and astrobiologist Dr Lewis Dartnell, joined by award winning comedian Helen Keen. Not to mention the chance to get a space-themed cocktail from the Bar at the End of the Universe and dance the night away to a DJ set from Kid Canaveral. Get ready for an intergalactic night out to remember. 

Online box office sales close on Friday 1st April at 4.30pm. All remaining tickets will be available at National Museums of Scotland from 6.45pm. See you there!
