18th March to 17th April including Easter school holidays

Spring into a new season of exciting science fun at Boom & Bloom!

Outside things are beginning to bloom and inside our experiments are set to go boom. As well as all the usual Science Centre fun, there’ll be even more on offer to excite all ages.

Have you heard the buzz around pollination? Let’s head off on a pollination exploration together in our brand new free live science show, Flower Power.

If live science has got you excited, don't miss the bubble fun in Science Live or help us plant the Boom & Bloom garden in Bio:Space.

We know how to grow plants on Earth, but can we sustain life on other planets? That's the question we'll be trying to answer in the Planetarium live show, Solar System Quest. Or come on an epic ride through space as we hunt for evidence of alien life in We Are Aliens, a subtitled film show.

Of course, it wouldn't be Easter without an egg hunt. But ours isn’t like all the others! 

And don’t forget all the other fun on offer! With two floors of interactive hands-on exhibits and huge demos in Science Live, there'll be something for the whole family to enjoy.

The Science Centre is open on weekends and during the school holidays. Don't forget to book your ticket in advance.
