Life Science Centre is open on weekends only until Saturday 23 October, and then we're back open 7 days. Tickets for timed slots can be purchased online in advance of your visit. Some slots on the afternoon will be kept free for walk-ups - but booking is advised to avoid disappointment.
Our safety measures remain in place. This includes the Life team and visitors being asked to wear a face covering unless exempt.
These regular events, led by Life's friendly Science Explainers, provide a delightful opportunity for young children to enjoy and explore the science centre.
Each session offers a mix of classic activities, such as Piccolo Music workshops, mini-beast handling and a toddler bubble disco alongside new activities, so that every event is different. Access to our hands-on Young Explorers' Zone and special planetarium shows for little ones are also available.
Pre-school days are drop in events so you can arrive and leave when it's convenient for you, but please be aware that spaces in Piccolo Music Workshops are limited and do tend to get booked up quickly.
Please note, Pre-school day tickets will be available to buy on the door on the day of your visit.
Pick up one of our Pre-School Day loyalty cards at reception! Collect a stamp every time you visit and claim your 4th visit FREE!
