Little Explorer Days

About Little Explorer Days

Little Explorer Days run from 10.30am to 3.30pm. But the Science Mall opens as normal between 10am and 5pm, so there’s plenty of time throughout the day to explore.

Under 3s go free. For children (age 3-15), standard Science Mall entry is £9.00, and adults pay the standard Science Mall entry of £11.00.

If you have a Science Passport, you can use your Passport for admission as normal on Little Explorer Days so it's a perfect time to pick one up and make the most of these incredibly popular events.

24th & 25th February: Up, Up and Away
Air is everywhere! Find out how we use our lungs as we explore our huff and puff. Play and investigate with bubbles and things that fly!

24th & 25th March: How Does Your Garden Grow
Join us as we investigate seeds, bugs and pollination to discover how our garden grows.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Little Explorer Days are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
