Event details

Awesome experiments and audience participation help to unravel science fact from science fiction in our fun, family-friendly shows.

Shows change regularly and cover all sorts of science themes like dinosaurs, the weather, aerodynamics (with fake flying pigs as test pilots), reactions, chain reactions... the list goes on!

The Science Theatre is equipped with an analogue induction loop.

​Shows are on at various times throughout the day, daily show times are available on arrival.

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.
