Life Science Centre isn’t just for kids. With our many exhibitions and shows, adults will find it's easy to spend a day exploring, and our variety of adults only events provide the opportunity to explore science-themed ideas and activities without kids getting in the way!

Our 4D Motion Ride is a hit with kids and adults alike – as your seat moves in time to the 3D action on screen you’ll even smell the smoke, feel the wind in your hair - and watch out for the water!

Our Curiosity Zone is a 100% hands-on exhibition that comes without instructions – explore, experiment and see what YOU make of it.

Our planetarium, the most popular in Britain, is also popular with adults - lie back and take a trip to the stars.

We also offer fun workshops on a range of topics from DNA to the Botany of Gin - great for team building days and as breakout events at conferences, and CPD sessions for teachers.
