Visit the Science Oxford Centre for a unique family experience this April. Explore, discover and play in the Exploration Zone, pick up an activity sheet and follow our spring woodland nature trails.

Your ticket

Your ticket includes two hours in the Exploration Zone and access to our woodland all day.

Exploration Zone

Children and grown-ups alike have fun experimenting with interactive exhibits in the Exploration Zone, where you can create and test flying designs at the Air Table, marvel at momentum with spinning discs at the Turntable, and try to beat the Scarf-shooter. Mini-engineers can build a giant magnetic ball run, or test what’s hot and what’s not with the Curious Camera. Brainiacs can solve puzzles, light up circuits and get the cogs whirring with our fun, mind-melting activities.

Water Lab

Our ‘Water Lab’ outdoor exhibit allows visitors to carry out a range of water-based play, investigation and problem solving activities. Experiment with floating and sinking, adjust the water flow from a trickling stream to a raging current or test your own ideas with other interchangeable accessories. We advise bringing a change of dry clothes in case you get wet. Children must be supervised by their adult at all times.

Café

Visit the Skogen Café at the Centre between 10am and 4pm for drinks, snacks and light lunches. Families are also welcome to bring their own refreshments.
