About

Family Fun Days run a three times a year, giving families an exciting day of interactive science. Enjoy short talks in our famous theatre and get stuck in to experiments, demonstrations, creative activities and making things to take home. Suitable for children aged 6-12, though older and younger siblings and friends are very welcome. 

We've got activities on for everyone to do together.

  • Please note though, we don't have any childcare facilities, so you'll need to stay with your children at all times.
  • The day is fully flexible, so you can drop in for 30 minutes, or stay for the whole five hours.
  • Most people tell us that they find there's enough here to fill at least three hours.
