Discover the secrets of the universe and space travel!

Come to Noordwijk with your class and discover the secrets of space and space travel. We have developed a new, safe, fun and educational program especially for you!

Fun, educational and safe

At Space Expo, students go on a journey of discovery through space and space travel. The program is interactive. This way the world of space travel comes to life even more.

Program (2.5 hours)

Museum visit (60 minutes)

A guide welcomes the class and accompanies them inside. Afterwards, the students are free to walk around in the museum and discover the various showpieces. They take a look inside the real space capsule of astronaut André Kuipers and discover one of the oldest objects in the solar system. The guide is available for any questions students may have.

Break (30 minutes)

Between the two parts of the program there is a thirty-minute break.

Spaceclass: How do you become an astronaut? (60 minutes)

In Space Expo's Astronaut Room, students delve deeper into the fascinating world of astronauts. Together with an experienced and enthusiastic guide, they themselves get to work on the most important themes from an astronaut training: working together, doing experiments and living and working on the International Space Station. The Space Class is adjusted according to level.
