Essential info
Please read! 

Life Science Centre will be closed on Friday 27 April as we set up for Maker Faire UK. Times Square Café will be open as usual.

While the Science Centre is home to Maker Faire UK on 28 - 29 April, our usual programme of exhibitions and shows will not be available.

The lift from the ground floor to the Young Explorers' Zone is currently out of order. Alternative access is possible via a ramp. Sorry for any inconvenience caused. We're working to fix it as soon as possible. Please ask a member of staff if you need assistance.
