Visit our Cambridge Centre

Permanent exhibitions, interactive shows and activities

Our interactive, hands-on science centre in the heart of Cambridge offers a fun space for discovery – a place where children and young people can get their hands on science, try stuff out and learn all about the principles and mysteries of our planet, universe and beyond. See our What’s On calendar for dates and times.


Unlock the secrets of life at LifeWorks! Enjoy an action-packed day out to explore everything from cells to survival with our interactive exhibits, lovingly crafted by our team of in-house experts to appeal to young people of all ages.


We also have a range of great science shows and activities happening. These take place throughout the day, at the centre every weekend and during school holidays. There’s no need to book. Just come along and begin your journey of discovery with us today.


Our team of enthusiastic Science Communicators are always on hand to explain and demonstrate to young visitors, and ignite their curiosity. They encourage you to press buttons, pull levers, peer through lenses and generally get hands on!
