Mission in our Spaceship

Join our Mission Commander on a scientific mission in space, exploring the northern lights and the solar storms impact on earth. The Spaceship needs a skilled crew of researchers, engineers and pilots to collect data on this virtual trip. Included in the ticket are also a Northern Lights film, a guided tour through our center and access to all exhibitions and experiments.


Northern Lights film

In our auditorium, we show a widescreen film: «The Northern Lights, from the Viking Era to the Modern Age». It explores the northern lights and Norwegian research-history up to recent days. Afterwards we take you on a guided tour through our center. Furthermore, you are free to explore our exhibitions and partake in our experiments.


3D film

We offer the film «Unravelling the Cosmos», which tells the story of space exploration, and how big space probably is (and it is BIG). Furthermore, you are free to explore our exhibitions and partake in our experiments

We are entering an exciting year for Spaceship Aurora. We will expand the center during the coming year. Among other things, we will get a new mission with the spaceship, we will get a new and expanded store and we will also have a new floor in our exhibition section with new and exciting content.

This extension requires that Spaceship Aurora will be closed for all activities in periods. Already on September 25th 2018, the center will close, and then open again in mid-February 2019. We are sorry for this, but we hope to catch up with lost time when we open again in February. We’re sorry for the late notice, and we hope this doesn’t bring any complications for you. 

In the fall of 2019 we will again have to close for a period of time to complete the building. We will return to you with more accurate dates as soon as we know more.

We look forward to offering you and your guests an even better visitor center in the future, and we hope to continue our good cooperation.
