Great family fun day for the kids. Price does add up when you bring a family but plenty to do for a whole day. Clean, organised, very interactive

We really enjoyed our visit here,with lots to see and do, from interactive activities and experiments, virtual reality experiences and a 4D show. My family and I found the Robot exhibition fascinating and would love to return to see any future exhibitions.

Exhibitions here change every few months. The robot exhibition was on when we went, and it was very enjoyable, especially for children, though adults enjoyed it too. There is plenty going on, different activities for children such as scientific experiments they can carry out themselves.

Spent the day with my wife and 2 daughters (aged 11 and 8). Took in lots of demonstrations and shows and especially liked the Curiosity zone and doing the science experiments. Highly recommended

This centre is great, we have been several times there is loads to do. In the winter there is an ice rink, loads of interactive activities inside for all all groups. Need more facilities for food, when it’s busy there are no seats.More

Probably better/quieter on a Saturday, as your nearest Car Park is Times Square which is used by workers through the week. If you're going to Life centre, try to go on the 4d cinema ride, its great!
