Our Place in Space
Expect out-of-this-world views as Our Place in Space shrinks the solar system into a 10km three-dimensional walking trail on Divis and the Black Mountain.
- Booking not needed
- Free event (admission applies)
Designed by artist Oliver Jeffers with Scientist Stephen Smartt and a creative team led by Nerve Centre, Our Place in Space is a playful experiment that asks: What happens to your perspective when you look back at earth from space?
From creating a star to writing a symphony for the universe, inventing a new form of transport, building a Minecraft planet or connecting with space watchers around the globe, Our Place in Space invites participants to consider how we might better share and protect our planet in future.
It brings our solar system down to Earth and sends us soaring into the stars to find new perspectives and reconsider what it means to live life on Earth. With panoramic views over Belfast and beyond, jog to Jupiter, visit Venus and sit by the Sun without ever leaving Earth.

What is Gift Aid?
Most of our places run the Gift Aid on Entry scheme at their admission points.
Under this scheme, if you're not a member you have the choice of two entry tickets:
- Gift Aid Admission
- Standard Admission
If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you a clear choice between the Gift Aid Admission prices and the Standard Admission prices at the admission point. It's entirely up to you which ticket you choose.
Gift Aid Admission includes a 10 per cent or more voluntary donation. Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid - an extra 25 per cent - potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.
An extra £1 paid under the scheme can be worth over £3 to the National Trust as shown below:
|Amount paid by visitor||£11.00||£10.00|
|Tax refund from Government*||£2.75||£0.00|
|Total received by the National Trust||£13.75||£10.00|
