About Little Explorer Days

Activities for Little Explorer Days run from 10.30am to 3.30pm. But the Science Mall opens as normal between 10am and 5pm, so there’s plenty of time throughout the day to explore. 

Under 3s go free. For children (age 3-15), standard Science Mall entry is £9.00, and adults pay the standard Science Mall entry of £11.00.

If you have a Science Passport, you can use your Passport for admission as normal on Little Explorer Days so it's a perfect time to pick one up and make the most of these incredibly popular events.
