We are very excited to have some of the Moon rocks brought back by the Apollo missions, on loan from NASA and the Science and Technology Facilities Council. Visit the exhibition for your chance to hold the rocks in their special case and take a closer look using USB microscopes.

We also have Moon soil, lunar and Mars meteorites, plus fossils and samples of Earth rock for comparison, with staff on hand to answer questions.
