What's on at Life Science Centre 

Life Science Centre is a fantastic family day out in the heart of Newcastle-upon-Tyne. There's so much to see and do here, with activities and exhibits for all ages. If you’ve visited before, you’ll be glad to know that most areas have reopened and there’s lots of new things to enjoy including new activities for under 7s - please note that the Young Explorers Zone is now closed. Here’s just a snapshot of what you can enjoy, with full details below! 

  • The amazing Brain Zone and Space Zone are back – including a recreation of part of the International Space Station, the planetarium and the stunning digital globe, the Sphere

  • Explore what Tomorrow’s World could look like, with green-themed activities across the centre.

  • Clever LEGO® Creations built by pro LEGO® artists. Highlights include brick models of the Houses of Parliament, a huge four-metre-long airport – both the handiwork of Warren Elsmore – and Stephenson's Rocket locomotive, by local artist Steve Mayes.
  • A chance to do real experiments. (Ages 7+ only.) 
  • Catch a new live show full of exciting bangs and explosions. (Recommended for ages 5+.)
  • Create a windmill or wind-powered moving toy to take home in our Making Studios.
  • Pop-up play areas for under-7s.

Everything is included in the price of your ticket, so you can start planning your fun-filled day out today. Dig deeper into what’s on at Life below…
