Flying Monsters

Two-hundred-and-twenty-million years ago dinosaurs were beginning their domination of Earth. But another group of reptiles was about to make an extraordinary leap: Pterosaurs were taking control of the skies. The story of how and why these mysterious creatures took to the air is more fantastical than any fiction — and one of the greatest mysteries in palaeontology. How did lizards the size of giraffes defy gravity and soar through prehistoric skies?

Explore the question for yourself with the giant screen film Flying Monsters, narrated by veteran filmmaker and renowned naturalist Sir David Attenborough.

Best for ages 8 and up.

Our Solar System:Spotlight Pluto

Curiosity and our need to question what we see has driven the exploration of our solar system from the dawn of time to the present day. This entirely new, entirely fresh take on the traditional planetarium show immerses you in a visual storytelling environment and takes you from the backyard of a farm in 1918 to the furthest, darkest, coldest regions of space… all the while shining a spotlight on the most important question of all: what are you curious about?
