Family Day


Visit the Science Oxford Centre for a unique family experience in the festive winter holiday. 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. Get hands-on at Live Lab with the Palaeo Puzzle.

With 15 acres of woodland and ponds, there’s plenty to explore outside too. Pick up an Explorer Backpack and trail map and see what wildlife you can spot.

Emira’s Café is open. Families are also welcome to bring food and refreshments.

Extra activity on 28th December Family Day: Unwrap the power of circuitry by soldering your own illuminating robin decoration to take home. For ages 8+.
