A unique immersive family experience

Join the epic journey into the sky and beyond!

Encounter the unique wonder of flight as you learn to fly like a bird, and design and race your own supersonic jet. Take an elevator ride to the edge of space and enjoy the view of Earth from above, or go on a Marathon to Mars and see how your body would cope on the long-haul trip to the red planet.

Above and Beyond is the most interactive exhibition on aerospace ever to tour. It’s packed with immersive simulations, participative design challenges and visionary concepts for the future and features over 10 exciting interactives. Bring your family, be inspired by amazing innovation and design, get up-close and personal with the technology that makes air and space travel possible.

Explore the future

Imagine if hopping in a spacecraft was as normal as getting in your car, or if it was possible to get airborne wherever and whenever you wanted. Above and Beyond also celebrates the amazing power of imagination to achieve the impossible. Think big and look up, towards a realm of infinite possibilities. Could you one day be the first person to land on another planet?

Above and Beyond  is recommended for ages 7+.
