Ever dream of being an astronaut? Well, thanks to the Science Museum, now is your chance! Famous British astronaut Tim Peake has teamed up with ‘Alchemy VR’ to offer the ultimate virtual reality experience.

Wave goodbye to gravity as you sit in the pilot seat and embark on your very own space mission, with a 360° view of the very spacecraft that rocketed Tim Peake 400km back down to Earth.


If you haven’t experienced virtual reality yet, this is your chance – in the words of Tim Peake:

‘It really is breathtaking – and that comes from someone who has spent an awful lot of time using VR systems while training for my first mission. Science Museum visitors are going to experience something that truly is very close to the real thing!’


At £7 a ticket, you’ll likely spend more on your Oyster card than you will flying to space. Tickets can be booked on the museum’s website, and it’s recommended that you book in advance as it’s set to be a sell out.
