From pre-schoolers to teenagers, and not forgetting parents, there's something for everyone at Life.

Families will find it easy to lose a day exploring everything Life has to offer - we recommend you set aside at least four hours, but many people spend much longer - and it's all included in your admission price!

We also offer occasional special events for families, including extra workshops and activities during school holidays.
