On weekdays during term time we may be busy with school groups; we recommend visitors arrive after 2.00pm for a quieter experience.

​Closures and changes to opening times

Outside of peak times we occasionally have to close areas of the science centre for routine maintenance or special events. We share information about planned closures on our website (look out for the Essential Info section at the top of the page), via Facebook and Twitter, and via our regular email newsletters where possible.

​​​​​​​Management reserves the right to change opening times when required.

"We went to the show and the person on stage was wonderful! He was engaging, enthusiastic and really caught the attention of the little (and not so little!) ones. He did a fantastic job and made science fun and entertaining!"
