Virtual visit to Life Science Centre

While we are temporarily closed, enjoy a virtual day out at Life! 

Join us on a tour of some of our favourite exhibitions and get a taste of what Life is like. We’ve also picked a bunch of fun activities for all ages that you can try from the comfort of your own home, to help you explore some of the stories and science in the exhibitions.  

Stay home, stay safe, have fun.
