Annual Pass

Annual Pass

Science Centre Annual Pass holders can enjoy a year of interactive and inspiring days out, with free entry to the interactive exhibitions and a whole host of extra special benefits and discounts.

Save 25% when you buy your Annual Pass by 30 September AND you’ll be invited to an exclusive preview event of our brand new visitor experience the week before we officially open!


Current pass holders who had a valid pass on Thursday 19 March 2020 will have their passes extended by the number of days the Centre will have been closed up to 10 October plus an additional month to reflect our initial reduced offer of weekends and school holidays once we reopen. This will be added automatically to your passes.

If you have not yet collected your Annual Pass, it will be ready for you at our welcome desk when you arrive.

If you have any questions regarding this or anything else, please email and someone will be happy to help.
