Before you visit

  • The hands-on nature of much of the centre means we have closed all of our usual spaces (including the Young Explorers' Zone). Instead, we have developed a completely new Dino Experience. This will be shorter than the usual visit. We have allocated 1 hour 45 minutes for ticket slots and this includes plenty of time to enjoy the Brick Dinos exhibition. Please arrive within 10 minutes of your booked time slot.

  • Pre-booking online is essential. This applies to Members, children aged 4 and under and carers. Members must bring Membership cards with them when they visit.

  • Complimentary tickets issued before lockdown and all special offers (including child-free offers for using public transport) are not valid at this time. Members of the Museums Association are still entitled to free entry and should book a free ticket for Members at checkout.

  • Time slots will be released in weekly batches. Slots can be booked up to midnight the day before you’d like to visit. Tickets are non-refundable and non-transferable.

  • The safety of our visitors and team is very important to us. See our safety video for information on what we have introduced.

  • Face coverings are compulsory for all visitors. Exemptions: visitors with disabilities and those with breathing difficulties if they are wearing the Sunflower lanyard. Children under 11 are also exempt.

  • Wheelchair hire, ear defender hire and locker facilities are not available at this time. If you have any queries about accessibility or need support, please email info@life.org.uk

On the day of your visit

  • If you have any of the symptoms of COVID-19, or if you have been in contact with anyone who has the virus in the last 14 days, please don't visit.
  • Please arrive within 10 minutes of your booked time slot. Our friendly team will look after you from a social distance.
  • Drinks and confectionery items will be available to buy from the café. Times Square Café is available for science centre visitors to eat packed lunches. Sorry but reusable cups cannot be accepted at present. Bottle and food warming facilities will not be available.
  • The gift shop will be open.
  • Sorry no cash transactions – card payments only.
  • Toilets are available.
