Last week we welcomed a group of intrepid space pioneers into the Museum to try out our new space trail which opened to the public on Saturday.
They were a group of family bloggers and their kids who came along to try out the trail and review it for us. You can read reviews from, Mum in Meltdown, Mummy from the Heart, Thinly Spread, and the Life and Times of a Household Husband on their blogs and see wee what the kids had to say about it themselves below.
Our space explorers were eager to tell us their favourite part of the trail, Cavan’s favourite bit was Asteroid in our Launchpad gallery ‘when we did all the hands on stuff ‘ and Alex’s was ‘looking at the real Apollo 10’s spaceship’ in Making The Modern World Gallery
Kaede and Jacob would both like to live on ‘the Moon’ if they could pick any of the destinations on our trail and Kaede wants to be ‘the last person to walk on it.’
We also asked our space travellers who they would most like to meet if they went to space again. Kaede is hoping for green, kind aliens ‘who will like to eat human food, and have 4 eyes and 10 arms’ and Cavan would like to meet ‘Neil Armstrong on Pluto’
Finally we wanted to know what the best thing they had learnt was and the answer was pretty much unanimous. The arcane mysteries of going to the loo in space were what really got them going. In the words of Cavan: ‘I learned a lot of things but my favourite was learning that Buzz Aldrin was the first to wet his pants on the moon.’
