About Family Nights: Destination Moon Launch

Celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo moon landings at Dynamic Earth.

This special evening will be the premier of our Destination Moon program which tells the epic story of humanity’s first voyage to another world through fun, family activities and demos.

Watch explosive rocket launches, zoom across the lunar surface on a VR moon buggy and even create your own astronaut mission patch badge to take home.

To top off your evening grab a free drink and popcorn and head down to our ShowDome cinema to experience the moon landings in spectacular 360⁰ with our new movie CAPCOM GO!

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Family Nights: Destination Moon Launch are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
