See science and technology really come to life in our three award winning galleries.

Scientrific on the ground floor is a hands-on, interactive gallery for the whole family.

Birth of an Industry on the first floor houses the museum element of the centre supported by an amazing collection of archive material and life-like reconstructions.

The rooftop Observatory gallery affords stunning views from the Welsh hills to the Pennines and is accessed by the wonderful scenic glass lift which reaches 30 metres above the River Mersey.

With holiday workshops, an interactive theatre, car parking, gift shop, cafe and playground, science has never been so much fun!
