Did you know that the footprints and tyre tracks left behind by astronauts on the moon will stay there forever because there is no wind to blow them away? Or that stars that do not twinkle are actually planets? 

Did you know that the footprints and tyre tracks left behind by astronauts on the moon will stay there forever because there is no wind to blow them away? Or that stars that do not twinkle are actually planets? Take a journey through space, exploring the stars, meteorites and planets and more amazing facts at Cobb+Co Museum’s Get Lost in Space holiday program from 2 to 12 April.

This special event has been developed for children three years and older to explore the world of space and ignite their passion for the ‘final frontier’. A feature of the program will be the star lab, an inflatable planetarium where visitors can explore the stars and constellations without any interruptions from the weather, pollution or the time of day. There will also be special guest stars from USQ and Queensland Museum and children will even be able to see and touch real meteorites. Children will be able to participate in a whole range of activities that are out of this world such as a creating a galactic mobile and solar eclipse.

While you are in the Museum, take the opportunity to check out the Kaleidoscope of Celebrations exhibition and our children’s play areas, The Coach Stop and Play Pit. Cobb’s Coffee Shop will be serving Merlo’s coffee, hand made delights, special children’s and gluten free menus.

Come rain, hail or shine, Get Lost in Space will be happening weekdays from 2 to 12 April 2013. The program is $10 per child and there will be special family sessions from 1pm.
