Events

Many of our special events, including adult events and pre-school days, have their own opening times and event details. Find your event in our What's On section for more information and online booking where available.

Please note, the Experiment Zone and Making Studios have separate opening times. 

When to visit

On weekdays during term time we may be busy with school groups; we recommend visitors arrive after 2.00pm for a quieter experience.

​Life’s school holiday dates reflect those given by Newcastle City Council.

​Closures and changes to opening times

Outside of peak times we occasionally have to close areas of the science centre for routine maintenance or special events. We share information about planned closures on our website (look out for the Essential Info section at the top of the page), via Facebook and Twitter, and via our regular email newsletters where possible.

​​​​​​​Management reserves the right to change opening times when required.

"Excellent value for money, we could have stayed longer as there's so much to do. The children and adults in our party thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Staff were very helpful, friendly and knowledgeable."
