Thank you for checking in on us. We are undergoing the final phase of a major redevelopment programme to improve our visitor experience. This includes the creation of an incredible new exhibition, a live science demo space and nature-themed activity zone, as well as redesigned welcome area, café and shop. We can’t wait to reopen but we can only do so once the works are complete. We can now confirm that our plan is to reopen on Saturday 17 October, with tickets going on sale in August. 

Whilst we are closed, our charity continues to offer fun science experiences for families and schools through Science@Home and social media. Thank you!
