Event details

We’re putting the ‘wonder’ into winter wonderland with science-themed activities!

 

Investigate fake snow in the Experiment Zone*, explore the winter night sky in the planetarium and make various creations to take home, including winter lanterns.


Children can also enjoy storytelling sessions or hop aboard The Polar Express Journey to the North Pole on the 4D Motion Ride*.


And if your family loves sci-fi, then the new exhibition Alien Invasion is a must! While over in the Science Theatre, there's still time to enjoy How to be an Evil Genius** (until 4 January and on 7 January) or, for one weekend only, explore bacteria, viruses and critters in an exciting puppet show (5-6 January).

 

Fancy a skate?

The perfect place for a spot of wintry fun with friends and family, skating*** at Life is a must on your winter check list! 

*Height or age restrictions apply.

**This show contains flashing images and lights.

***Additional charges apply for ice skating, with the rest of the school holiday programme included in your science centre ticket. We offer great value combo tickets so you can experience all of our winter wonderland activities.
