From Saturday 5 February

The secrets of survival!  Animals and nature can teach us so much. This spring, explore how creatures survive in extreme conditions around the world in a new live show - how do kangaroos stay cool in the desert and polar bears stay warm in the Arctic?  Discover the mysteries which lie beneath the ice in the planetarium, and make (and take home) your own bug snug for bees, ladybirds or woodlice in the Making Studios. Go wild for Gaia – a huge gleaming replica of our shared home, planet Earth.  


Subcribe to our enews to be the first to hear when tickets go on sale.
