VISITOR UPDATE: Following the latest government announcement placing England into a new national lockdown, we have had to temporarily close the Science Centre. We are closely monitoring the situation and, in recognition of the challenges the country is currently facing, we are working towards reopening for the Easter school holidays. Tickets are not currently on sale but please keep an eye on our social media and website for updates. If we receive any advice that suggests we can reopen sooner, we will announce that on these channels as well. In the meantime, please enjoy our Science@Home activities and share your family fun with us on Facebook and Twitter. Thank you.
