General audience shows

General audience shows are not recommended for children under the age of six. Everyone attending a general audience show must be able to remain quietly seated for 40-50 minutes. If you think your child would be unable to sit quietly for that long, we recommend attending a children's show.

Children's shows

For young children between three and six years old, we recommend attending a session of Tycho to the Moon. Perfect Little Planet is suitable for children aged five years and older.

For safety reasons, there is no admittance or re-admittance after the show starts. It is recommended that you arrive at least 30 minutes prior to a session to purchase show tickets.
