Part of Ipswich Festival 2019

Unleash your inner scientist at the new Sciencentre.

Follow your curiosity, ask questions, test your ideas and use your imagination in this fun and experience-rich environment.

Find out more about the science behind train travel, challenge your friends, solve puzzles and learn how science is a part of the things we do every day.

Explore the world of science through play with over 20 interactive stations including:

Rising spark – how far can the electrical spark jump?

Magnetic shuttle – move the ring without touching it.

Convection currents – how does heat make water flow?

Train wheels – which set of wheels will stay on the track?

Catenary arch – build a stable arch without glue or nails.

Entry to Sciencentre is free with Museum admission. Visit as much as you like in one year by purchasing an Annual Pass.
