Essential info
Please read! 

Please note that some areas will be closed from 5 September – 25 October (inclusive) as we get ready for the launch of the new Space Zone (opens 26 October). Prices have been reduced to reflect this.

The 4D Motion Ride has been a firm favourite for visitors of all ages since Life Science Centre opened nearly 20 years ago. However, as the science centre continues to grow and evolve, it is time to retire this popular attraction to make space for something new – so make sure you visit by 25 October 2019 if you want to enjoy one final thrilling ride! Life would like to hear from visitors what they’d like to see replace the 4D Motion Ride, so please send your ideas to info@life.org.uk. Also, don’t forget to check out the science centre’s newest exhibition Space Zone from 26 October 2019 to explore the wonders of the Universe and discover how space exploration impacts our everyday lives.

Narrated by BBC Radio 4’s science comedian Helen Keen, the planetarium show Moonstruck explores the brightest object in our night sky.

Please note that during term time before 2pm the planetarium can be busy with school visits. To avoid disappointment, please call us on the day of your visit.
 
The planetarium is equipped with an analogue induction loop and has spaces for wheelchairs.
 
During busy times, we request that you visit the planetarium, Science Theatre and Motion Ride once - this is to allow other visitors to enjoy the experience too. Thanks for your consideration.
