    Space theatre absolutely brilliant, worth queuing up beforehand to get in for. Good for the whole family with a wide range of exhibits, some a little old and tired now but nonetheless still fun!

    Possibly the best museum in Leicester. Great for a date and to take the kids, so really one for everyone. Make sure you visit the space theatre, the shows are one of the best ways to spend a saturday

    Gift aid your ticket and get free annual pass. Cafe is good value, with nice food. Planetarium show excellent. Use entry ticket barcode for kids to access various "trail" features around the centre.

    An amazing day out for all the family but here are my tips: Buy tickets in advance for school holidays, upgrade to the FREE Annual Pass by signing Giftaid form and see a planetarium show (STUNNING!)

    There is extra picnic seating in the room beyond the booster cafe. Don't bother with the coffee.

    O.K. If you're a Star-Gazer or Rocket Scientist. Deadly boring if you're not.
