NEW for 2017!

We are proud to present our beautiful new large scale Orrery! This fantastic addition to the Spectacular Science exhibits is located in the Domes of Discovery exhibition in Dome F. The Orrery shows the movements of the planets and our Moon around the Sun giving you a fantastic insight into why we can see planets at different times as the years progress.

In addition we now have a Lithophone. This fantastic musical instrument is an octave made of stone. Come and try it for yourself and see what tunes you can play.

Come and join us for a very different experience! SOUNDSCAPE, a concert of sheer escapism with an extraordinary piano quartet. Stunning big-screen visuals, a breathtaking backdrop to the Brighton Film Quartet's hauntingly beautiful cinematic music and multi-layered soundtrack. Classical meets minimalism, with an unexpected twist. Think Einaudi with attitude, Nyman on a night out. All this plus you will have an opportunity to look through the telescopes and spot Jupiter and Saturn (weather permitting). Soundscape has been quoted as being: "A class act. Top musicians and beautiful compositions." Julian Caddy, Brighton Fringe Director BOOKING ESSENTIAL. SUPPER INCLUDED
