You've told us you love having a party here with our exciting programmes, age-related activities, and party menus. There's free admission for the parents of the host, your very own birthday party organiser hand-picked from our talented pool of staff, ample, discounted on-site parking and a good fun goody bag. All you have to do is bring the cake!

What's on offer:

  • Activities

    A choice of Bubble-ology, Dino Dig, Cast a Fossil and Forensic Fun. Whichever you choose, your guests will enjoy 30-45 minutes of fun, take home a souvenir and perhaps a wee bit of scientific knowledge too! (Our activities are age specific, please discuss which is most appropriate when you book).

  • Digital fulldome planetarium

    Book for an amazing tour of the Universe, led by an expert Sky Pilot from our planetarium team. Our fulldome digital planetarium lets you explore the skies like never before - awesome!

  • Food

    You and your guests are offered a spread of party food, including healthy and vegetarian options, served on big platters for everyone to help themselves. That way guests can eat as much or as little as they wish, choosing their own favourite items.

    Your ticket means that you can join the other visitors and take in a scheduled science show to add to the fun and learning, if you can fit it in!
