What the press has said
“A thumbs up from me for the new Legend of Apollo experience at the Science Museum” Anjana Ahuja, The Times (London)
“Nothing, of course, can create the experience of actually visiting the moon, but you'll come away from this with a better understanding – and deeper admiration – for what [Apollo Astronaut, David] Scott and his colleagues achieved.” Graham Lawton, New Scientist
“A new simulator designed to give visitors a taste of what it’s like to take part in a space mission. It costs a fiver (£4 for children), which sounds a bit pricey unless you convince yourself that it’s a credit crunch holiday, in which case you might consider it a bargain.” Critics’ Choice, Time Out
“ In what the Science Museum believes to be a world-first, the audience can feel the impact of the rocket take-off and experience a bumpy ride on the Lunar Rover buggy courtesy of the dynamic seat motion in the theatre. There is more to come as once he audience has "landed" on the moon, the smell of space, akin to explosives, hits the auditorium. There is even a final, watery surprise when the shuttle lands on the ocean at the end of the astronauts' journey.” Culture 24
In summer 2009, Legend of Apollo was voted number 3 out of the top 10 family visitor attractions in the UK by the Guardian national newspaper.
