Tis’ the season in the Life Science Centre and Times Square!

Make, investigate and celebrate Christmas at Life with all the family.

Included in your science centre ticket are festive-themed Science Theatre shows, making Christmas decorations, coding Christmas tree light patterns and investigating the properties of fake snow.
Visitors can even make their own ink to write a letter to Santa and be dazzled at Science busking Christmas demonstrations. (Some activities are for ages 7+ only).
The new Space Zone will show video messages, recorded by astronauts as they spent the holidays on the International Space Station!

Extra activities in Times Square (additional costs apply):
Get your skates on and head to the hugely popular outdoor ice rink. Go to to book.
Christmas wouldn’t be complete without a visit to Santa’s Grotto in Times Square! Mr Claus will be here every weekend in December, as well as Monday 23 December.
