Toddler Takeover: Super Senses

Sniff, smell, feel, listen, touch and explore, in our super sensory fun-packed day, just for 1-5 year olds!

Get stuck in, and explore a variety of textures at a low level in our texture garden, listen out and prick up your ears to some interesting noises in Soundlab and join Ursa and Leo for The Magical Forest storytime.

There won't be any school groups around the exhibits so the whole space will be free to roam around for families. Fly around the stars and planets in our brilliant presenter-led Planetarium show, 'Space Explorers' especially for under 5s (add on to your ticket for £2.50 each).

We do allocate spaces for Members also (Toddler Takeover is included in your annual membership), but it's important that these spaces are reserved in advance, as there will only be a very limited number of tickets for Members available on the day itself.
