Not enrolled in a boarding school for wizards? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered with our Potions workshops!*

 

Then again, if you are one of the minions helping the villain in our interactive Science Theatre show How to be an Evil Genius, maybe we should be careful about sharing our potion secrets with you!

 

Are you scared of the unknown? There’s lots of mystery surrounding other planets in our Solar System – come and find out more in our new planetarium show Alien Worlds.

 

Then hop on board our 4D Motion Ride** for the thrilling adventure Frankenstein before you make a haunted house in our Making Space, which is open every day during the school holidays.

And the blockbuster exhibition Robots – then and now is still in town – judge for yourself if you find the lifelike humanoids creepy!

Please note: the Science Centre will open an hour earlier than normal on weekdays during half-term at 9.00am.
