Visit the Science Oxford Centre for a unique family experience this autumn. Explore, discover and play in the Exploration Zone, where children and grown-ups alike have fun experimenting with interactive exhibits – create and test flying designs at the Air Table, build a giant magnetic ball run, and see what’s hot and what’s not with the Curious Camera.

With 15 acres of woodland and ponds, there’s plenty to explore outside too. Thanks to Operation Earth, you can now pick up an Explorer Backpack and trail map and see what wildlife you can spot. And don’t forget to create a splash with our amazing outdoor Water Lab.

Why not bring a picnic and stay all day!
