The Brain Zone lets you understand what’s going on inside your head through exciting, fun activities and exhibits and in the Experiment Zone, you can don a lab coat and unleash your inner scientist.
Life also has a special area for under 7s and a changing programme of exhibitions and events. From November to February, Life hosts an outdoor ice rink in Times Square, just outside the Science Centre (separate prices apply).
