Essential info
Please read! 

Please note that some areas will be closed from 5 September – 25 October (inclusive) as we get ready for the launch of the new Space Zone (opens 26 October). Prices have been reduced to reflect this.

Please note: We are busy with school groups from 21 - 25 October. We recommend visiting after 2.00pm for a quieter experience. 

The 4D Motion Ride has been a firm favourite for visitors of all ages since Life Science Centre opened nearly 20 years ago. However, as the science centre continues to grow and evolve, it is time to retire this popular attraction to make space for something new – so make sure you visit by 25 October 2019 if you want to enjoy one final thrilling ride! Life would like to hear from visitors what they’d like to see replace the 4D Motion Ride, so please send your ideas to info@life.org.uk. Also, don’t forget to check out the science centre’s newest exhibition Space Zone from 26 October 2019 to explore the wonders of the Universe and discover how space exploration impacts our everyday lives.

Event details

Creep it real this October half-term with spooky science at Life Science Centre. It’s Halloween fun for all the family.
 

Highlights include: 

  • Gory: Compare real blood samples from a bird, amphibian and mammal in the Experiment Zone.*
 
  • Illusion: Make plastic ghosts float and your skin crawl with spooky optical illusions – you won’t believe your eyes!
 
  • Crafty: Make your own shadow puppet or create a Halloween lantern using LED circuits in the Making Studios. Both makes can be taken home to enjoy!
 
  • Mystery:  Enjoy some of our top science demonstrations in the Science Theatre and choose your favourites.


Plus - we're revving things up from the second week of half-term (26 October - 3 November):

  • Out of this world: The fantastic new Space Zone launches, where you can bravely explore the deepest darkest parts of the Universe and climb into a mock-up of part of the International Space Station. (But remember, in space no one can hear you scream… Mwahaha!)
 
  • Gross: Get gooey and make your own slime in these popular workshops. A firm favourite as the kids can make a mess and we’ll clear it up! (26 October - 3 November only)


Please note: the Science Centre will open at the earlier time of 9.00am on weekdays during the second week of half-term (28 October - 1 November).

*The Experiment Zone is for ages 7+ only.

Please note that ticket prices will increase from 26 October. Click here for more information.
