Fun at the Science Museum


Visit date:


Lots of fun activities to go at the Life Science Centre in Newcastle! Friendly staff, level access and lots of things to entertain kids and adults!

Transport & Parking


The Life Science Centre is a short walk from Newcastle Central Station and it also therefore has great transport links.



You enter through double automatic glass doors and go into a reception area. There is a dropped counter and then turn style entrance plus a wheelchair/buggy entrance. Once inside the science centre is over two floors, the main activities are straight in front of you as you enter. Loads of interactive and fun activities to try - lots of hands on stuff which is great! There was an exhibition area which had robots on when I visited, including a Dalek, Iron Man and lots of other fun things - lots of space to move around and see all the exhibits. There is also an experiment zone which is down some steps, the only way I saw to get to this if you're a wheelchair user was to go back towards reception, past the cafe and through the robot exhibition. It would be great to see a platform lift down into the experiment area or the linking of the main floor to the ramp that leads up to the museum area/experiment zone - rather than having to go all the way around! There is also a motion ride, although I didn't go on it a member of staff advised that it is wheelchair accessible - which is fab!



Great accessible toilet, just near the entrance. Fairly spacious and red cord hung correctly!



Staff were friendly and knew the answers to my questions on accessibility.
