Worth a visit

This is a great place to take children to make science seem interesting and appealing. They wander around completely fascinated and in awe of all the gadgets, which leads them to ask questions and learn more. It's good fun for adults too - it brings out the big kid in all of us.

fantastic fun!

The life centre is in time square in Newcastle so is ideally situated if you are arriving by train. Just turn left out of the main station exit and you’ll see the giant logo. In fact I think there are signs from inside the station portico.

The centre for life is a science museum which has a great number of modern exhibitions. It also has a good little café and every winter an outdoor skating rink is set up outside its doors which is very popular. The museum itself is popular, especially with school trips.

As the life museum is a bit on the pricey side, for an alternative why not check out the Newcastle discovery museum, a free science museum with more of a local focus?

great fun for small and big kids

A the center of life is a great day out so much to do
And learn its great as there is lots of things to play with
For hands on times of people they even have a simulation
Ride which when I went which was a while ago
Had lots of little things like a car driving around in what looks
Like central park in new York and a woman on roller blades
Few other things like rollercosters its worth heading over to the
Climbing wall as well it moves some times they have things like
Compactions like shoot outs and stuff where u can win prizes
This is mostly for school trips worth a look in can be reli good fun
