Tim Peake's Spacecraft

Tim Peake's Spacecraft

Details

British Astronaut Tim Peake orbited Earth almost 3,000 times during the Principia mission to the International Space Station. He even ran the London Marathon! Now you can come face-to-face with the historic piece of engineering that transported him safely back to Earth.

Tim Peake's historic capsule lands at National Railway Museum in January 2018, along with a space-age virtual reality experience narrated by the astronaut himself. Presented by Samsung and the Science Museum Group.

Get up close to the Soyuz TMA-19M descent module, learn about Tim's mission and marvel at mankind's journey from steam to space. Find out more at http://www.nrm.org.uk/soyuz .

    Map reference: SE 593520  Lat: 53.96070 Long: -1.09768

    On foot: It's a 10 minute walk to the museum from the centre of town, and the route is well signposted. But for a quicker, more convenient route from the city centre why not catch the Road Train which runs from the museum's entrance to York Minster.

    By Road: The museum is clearly signposted from all approaches to the city. The visitor car park is on Leeman Road (£9 per day). Accessible parking is free, and available outside the museum's City Entrance.

    Parking: with charge. Coach parking also onsite.

    Park & Ride:
    With six cleverly located sites surrounding the city centre getting into York has never been easier. www.yorkparkandride.co.uk


    Parking: with charge
