Hitch a ride to the stars and beyond at the Life Science Centre. Kids can take part in experiments, learn loads about the weird world of science and even get wrist-deep in dino poo! Sound good?

The team host two major exhibits a year which means there’s always something mind bending on display. Take Dino Jaws: it’s a deep dive into a prehistoric world with animatronic life-sized dinosaur heads - including a rather terrifying T-rex!  Kids will love getting up close, especially when that means examining a huge poo to find traces of Euoplocephalus’ last meal.

As well as scales and tails, journey to the North’s biggest planetarium. It’s a family favourite and quite an education in recognising planets and distant constellations. Education is, in fact, at the heart of everything they do: with scientific experiments, a 4D motion ride and a Young Explorers’ Zone for under 7s, brains will be well and truly supersized!
