Accessibility

Winchester Science Centre aims to be an accessible and welcoming environment for all and passionately believes in science for everyone. There are currently significant barriers to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) for many young people and their families, particularly those with disabilities and impairments. We are determined to be a catalyst for greater diversity in STEM and to showcase how science can improve lives. We are currently working to make the Science Centre and Planetarium as accessible, inclusive and welcoming as possible. Developments include the installation of accessible exhibits, tactile interpretations, hearing loops, step-free access, a Changing Places toilet, sensory room and other accessibility modifications. We hope this will transform our visitor experience and lead to fantastic STEM experiences for a much wider audience.
