Visit the Science Oxford Centre for a unique hands-on science experience for families. To say thank you, we’re offering free places for NHS staff key workers and their families today*. Play and explore with the exhibits in our amazing Exploration Zone and make spinning paper rainbows to test out on our Air Table. Try out some of our Lockdown Challenges and play a game of Guess What, see if you can build the tallest tower, or make your own ball run. Enjoy some fresh air in our 15 acres of outdoor space, and see if you can spot nature’s own spinning ‘helicopter’ seeds in our woodland!
