Science Museum

The Science MuseumThis is an amazing place to visit for all ages.
So much to do! Do not try to visit everything in the museum in one day



The Francis Crick Institute

The Francis Crick InstututeABOUT:
The Francis Crick Institute is one of the top scientific research centers in the country.

The work of the Francis Crick Institute will help us understand why disease develops and to find new ways to diagnose, prevent and treat a range of illnesses − such as cancer, heart disease, stroke, infections and neurological diseases

Exhibitions:
If you are waiting for a train at St Pancras International and have an hour or so to kill then pay a visit to The Francis Crick Institute which is very near the station.
(Leave St Pancras by the rear exit and the building is in front of you)

On the ground floor of the impressive looking building is a very interesting exhibition hall (complete with reading area for children) .
This is a permanent exhibition which will appeal to older primary children through to adults

The Francis Crick Institute

What’s on special  – Science on Screen
Autumn/Winter 2017-18

This autumn and winter the Francis Crick Institute presents it’s first film festival: a series of compelling dramas with a science twist. Come along to enjoy top notch films, a drink from the bar, complimentary popcorn and great after-show discussions with our panel of speakers from the Crick and beyond.



The Observatory Science Centre

The Observatory Science Centre

The Observatory Science Centre

Situated in East Sussex this is a great place to visit specially with primary aged children, although the telescopes (in 6 domes) would be of more interest to older children and adults.

Lots of hands-on things inside and outside so go on a sunny day and take a picnic! (although there is a cafe).

Home of the The Royal Greenwich Observatory (RGO) which was founded at Greenwich in London in 1675 by King Charles II but was moved to Herstmonceux just after the second world war in order to escape the lights and pollution of the city.

Thompson 26-inch Refracting Telescope
The Thompson 26-inch Refracting Telescope, situated in Dome E is open to the public during the day and is used on Open Evenings.
This telescope the second largest in great Britain and is one of the largest refracting telescopes in the world.




Winchester Science Centre

Winchester Science Centre

This is a great place to visit. Two floors of over 100 fantastic exhibits .
Suitable for teenagers as well as primary aged children.
Make it a day out!
The planetarium is amazing ( the largest standalone planetarium cinema in the UK)



Manchester Museum of Science and Industry
