Life is home to a whole host of exhibitions - some permanent and some visiting for anywhere from a few weeks to several months.

Because we're a science centre, our idea of an exhibition might be a bit different from what you're used to; they tend to be interactive and hands-on, so don't be afraid to get involved!

"Goodness knows where they find their staff - they were all just lovely."
