  • On arrival at reception on the day of your first visit, you will be issued with a receipt. You must present this each time you return to the science centre. It is your responsibility to keep it safe. Sorry, but we are unable to replace lost or damaged receipts and you will not be granted reentry without it.  
  • Each time you visit, your receipt will be date stamped. You cannot use this ticket for reentry into the science centre more than once a day. You do not need to book your free return visits online.  

  • Your additional visits are on a like-for-like basis with the original booking, so only those who came on the first visit are eligible to return for free. So if you buy one adult ticket - you can have two free ‘adult’ visits in addition to your initial visit. 

  • Standard admission fees apply for any additional visitors who were not part of the original booking. 

  • Tickets are non-transferrable. Tickets have no monetary value and cannot be exchanged or resold. 

  • You may be asked to present ID or proof of original purchase on arrival. If your ticket was bought online, this would be your booking confirmation email. 

  • If any person attempts to enter Life with a receipt which has been exchanged or resold, they will be refused entry or asked to pay for a new ticket. 

  • If you would like to become an annual member, we will deduct your admission price from the cost of an annual ticket but only on the day of your original visit. 

  • Appropriate proof of entitlement to any discounted ticket rate applies.
