Three simple rules

For those who are new to the experience of ice skating, we have three simple rules to get you up on your feet in no time. Firstly, always take it slow. There’s no rush and you will be among other new-comers who are all keen to learn. Secondly, try to keep your knees bent when skating. By doing this you will ensure that your knees are not locked, resulting in more control as you glide along the ice. Lastly, have fun. This is one of the best times of year and is truly a wonderful way to experience Christmas cheer.

Advance bookings are advised in order to guarantee a chance to hit the ice. Limited tickets are available on the day from the box office and at peak times there may be long delays before you get a chance to skate.

Planning ahead

Ice skating at the Natural History Museum ice rink is a ton of fun and the perfect way to start your Christmas celebrations. As you can imagine, this event is very popular and tickets are selling out fast. If you to visit our capital city, please plan ahead. Accommodation at this time of year is in high demand.
