Science Oxford Centre

The Science Oxford Centre is a new experience for children, families and adults where all you need to get started is a little curiosity. Explore, experiment and make discoveries in our Exploration Zone, follow the trails in our woodland and enjoy clubs, shows and more in our theatre and workshop.


Following the government announcement on the national lockdown, the Science Oxford Centre is closed until further notice. We have cancelled our Family Open Days in January. We will automatically issue refunds to all bookers, so no action is required. We are sorry for any disappointment and we look forward to welcoming you back as soon as we can. If you have already booked, we have issued you a refund, please allow 5 working days for this to be processed by your bank. Please contact [email protected] for more information or you can call 01865 810 000. In the meantime, please keep up-to-date with Science Oxford by following us on social media or sign up for our newsletter. Thank you for your support and understanding.
