Discover Level 1

Full of light, sound, creating and sensory experiences. Here you can make giant bubbles, have fun with illusions, mould the tactile sand and even walk through a tornado!

You can also film and draw your own animations in our Aardman Animations inspired exhibits, test stuff out in the Tinkering Space and get a glimpse of life as an astronaut in the Space Gallery.

Level 1 is where you'll find the Studio, The Den and the entrance to the 3D Planetarium.
