Space programme for schools 18 Sep - 10 Nov Free Activities

Explore space as Soyuz TMA-19M: Tim Peake’s Spacecraft lands in the Science and Media Museum.

On June 18 2016, after six months orbiting Earth on the International Space Station—during which he conducted experiments, walked in space and even ran a marathon—Major Tim Peake returned to Earth in the Soyuz TMA-19M descent module. Now, this historic craft is coming to Bradford and will be on display at the National Science and Media Museum.

Space Days is a free day-long package that includes the opportunity to find out more about the Soyuz TMA-19M module, take part in an interactive science show that explores light and space travel, and visit Wonderlab.

Why not complete your class's Space Day with one of our IMAX 3D documentaries? These 45-minute films bring the science of space to life with spectacular big-screen cinematography.
