Included in your ticket

From the creator of the world-renowned BODY WORLDS exhibitions, anatomist, Dr Gunther von Hagens presents ANIMAL INSIDE OUT, an unforgettable way to learn more about animal science.

NEW Brain Zone lets you understand what’s going on inside your head through exciting, fun activities and exhibits.

Explore how real science is done; carry out practical experiments using proper tools and materials and meet real-life working scientists.

Experience every twist, turn, high and low as your seat moves in time to the 3D action on screen in our 4D Motion Ride.

*For safety reasons, you must be at least 1.2 metres in height to use the 4D Motion Ride.

Life’s planetarium has had a major upgrade and promises you an experience that’s bigger and better than ever.

A hands-on area at Life for under 7s. It’s an exciting, stimulating and safe world where children get to take charge, learn new things and have fun.

Are you curious? The Curiosity Zone is a place that gives you the opportunity to think like a scientist, not somewhere that tells you things scientists have already found out.

Step inside Life’s Science Theatre and take part in a live science show! Shows change regularly and cover all sorts of science themes.

Life is home to a whole host of exciting exhibitions. They tend to be interactive and hands-on, so don't be afraid to get involved!
