Fancy a day with an extra spark? The Life Science Centre will give every family member glimpses of wonder; which isn’t a bad accomplishment for a day out!
Bring the whole family down and explore the North’s biggest planetarium, see what planets you can spot! Get set for a rocky adventure on the 4-D motion ride and a catch one of the daily live experiments.
They even have two major exhibitions a year meaning there're 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!
