Catalyst is an interactive science centre whose aim is to make science exciting and accessible to people of all ages and abilities.
At weekends and during school holidays Catalyst has a fascinating programme of activities for families. These workshops and shows are extremely popular so tickets are limited and are issued on a first come first served basis.
Catalyst now houses the Mersey Gateway visitor centre so if you want to come and find out all about the new bridge being built over the Mersey then pop in and have a look.
