Moon50

Moon50 Landing Party

Join us on July 20th for an unmissable one-off family party, exactly 50 years from the moment we landed on the Moon. Delve into our very best space themed experiences, and be transported back in time in our retro Moon memories living room. Dress up, and discover how the Moon landings inspired us to think big, make peace and look after our planet.

Glasgow Science Centre takes you back to 1969 with flower power and of course celebrating humankind's first steps on the surface of the Moon. A truly intergenerational celebration of nostalgia and science for all the family with activities, live music, science shows and more - so step back in time and relive the moment!

Visit a 1969 living room and hear recollections of fellow Glaswegians' memories of this moment, make your own lunar lander, be captivated by brand new planetarium and science shows and even get groovy in our very own swinging 60s disco!
