The Space Vault Exhibition at the River & Rowing Museum


We have lift off for all you space enthusiasts out there with The Space Vault Exhibition coming to the River & Rowing Museum this July.

Using immersive audio and visuals, and comprising one of the UK's largest private collections of space artefacts, The Space Vault Exhibition tells the thrilling story of human spaceflight above the Earth and to the Moon, from the Apollo program and Soviet space era, to the Space Shuttle, International Space Station and SpaceX.

The Exhibition is installed within a purpose-built lunar landscape, wrapped around the entire Gallery. A cinema screen inside the Gallery countdowns every 20 minute to launch the visitor's experience with the deafening sounds and astonishing imagery of the mighty Saturn V breaking the bonds of Earth's gravity to transport humans to the Moon.

Curated from the Space Vault collection, and following a successful inaugural run at the European Space Agency, the Space Vault Exhibition is commencing a five-year public tour across the UK and Europe. With Oxfordshire at the heart of the UK space industry the Exhibition is on public display in Henley-on-Thames until the end of June 2025.
