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.
A visit to Life wouldn't be complete without exploring our selection of science kits, toys, books, souvenirs and gifts to suit all ages and budgets.
The shop is located near the Life Science Centre reception and is open to the public - you don't need a science centre ticket to visit the shop. It's open during normal science centre opening times.
Items are not available to buy online, visit Life Science Centre to see our full range.
