Life Science Centre is now open on weekends only between 10:00am - 5:00pm. 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.
Life's scavenger hunt
To celebrate our 21st birthday, we're challenging you to take part in a scavenger hunt to find 21 things in your local area.
Join our team in exploring the great outdoors on a scavenger hunt.
A perfect introduction to science for toddlers and young explorers, our scavenger hunt will help little ones understand the world around them and spot patterns that we see every day. It's also a great way to discover your local area and spend time together outdoors as a family! Little ones who successfully complete our scavenger hunt will be sent a well done certificate in the post.
All online content is FREE, but Life is a charity and so this is a challenging time for us. Please consider supporting Life and help us to continue to inspire everyone in North East England to explore and enjoy science. Donate here.
