Visit the Life Science Centre for fun, educational days out for kids, families and adults in Newcastle upon Tyne.

Our packed programme includes science activities for all ages from pre-school to adults, including special events and birthday parties. We’re a great destination for school trips and groups visits, and during the winter you can even go ice skating on our outdoor ice rink.
