Life Science Centre

Museum in Newcastle upon Tyne

Life Science Centre is an educational visitor attraction in the center of Newcastle upon Tyne, England. It houses science exhibitions, live shows and the biggest planetarium in the North of England. Pn of the highlights of a visit is the Motion Ride, a simulator that lets you ‘experience’ bungee jumping and the like (the 4D film changes every year). There are lots of thought-provoking arcade-style games, and if the information sometimes gets lost on the way, never mind, kids will love it.

since May 2000 the Life Science Centre is part of the International Centre for Life – a pioneering ‘science village’.
