About Winchester Science Centre and Planetarium

This kid's attraction spreads across two floors of hands-on STEM activities, experiment displays and a little one's soft play area. The guitar is big enough to sit in and there is also a giant ear. Find out how to get to space with robots and coding or look up at the stars on the 360° planetarium screen. You could even meet a research from the local university or watch a banging live science show. Wind down outside and scavenge for minibeasts at the garden set in the South Downs National Park.
