The wonder of science is that it can be applied to so many things. The Life Science Centre will give every family member glimpses of wonder; which isn’t a bad accomplishment for a day out!

With science activities to enjoy for all ages, The Life Science Centre is ideal for young and old explorers alike! There’s a state-of-the-art planetarium, an exciting 4-D motion ride and a Science Theatre with daily live demonstrations.

Two major exhibitions a year means there’s always new things to see and learn. In the winter you can combine science with a little outdoor ice rink fun, as you strap on your skates and try and maintain your sense of gravity as you speed, slide or fall on the slippery ice!

Ask questions, learn how things work and try it for yourself!
