Centre for Life - Newcastle

Stunning shows projected on a 360 degree domed ceiling above your head.

Life Science Centre is an interactive and fun environment in the centre of Newcastle, which aims to engage and educate the North East and surrounding areas about science. Life is an independent educational charity and hosts a range of fascinating, hands-on exhibitions and events throughout the year. With a variety of shows in the Science Theatre, the Planetarium and the amazing 4D Motion Ride*, Life Science Centre is the perfect destination for a day out with the family - or you can simply pop over by yourself and learn something new! We also have a gift shop and Times Square Cafe on site serving a selection of hot food and Starbucks

*Please note – you must be a minimum of 1.2 metres tall to ride the Motion Ride. See ww.life.org.uk for details.
