Life Science Centre

Life Science Centre

Life Science Centre is part of the International Centre for Life –  a pioneering ‘science village’ that opened in May 2000. For 20 years, researchers from Newcastle University, entrepreneurs, NHS clinicians, science communicators and educators have been part of Life – creating synergy as they work side-by-side, collaborate and share expertise on one city centre site.

The educational attraction Life Science Centre welcomes about 300,000 visitors a year, inspiring people in North East England to explore and enjoy science and to discover its relevance to their own lives.

The exhibitions are designed with content to appeal to both children and adults. The science centre also hosts some adult-only events in evenings, including an informal science debate series called Science Speakeasy.

Life Science Centre is home to the biggest planetarium in the North of England and is a highlight of its Space Zone exhibition.

Everything inside Life Science Centre is included in one ticket, with no additional charges for the planetarium or live shows in the Science Theatre
