GRAB YOUR SLEEPING BAGS!

Join us for an extraordinary night of science!

A Sleepover at the Science Centre is a great group event, an unforgettable family outing and a unique indoor camping experience. For almost two decades, we have planned fun-filled, action-packed nights. Our sleepovers have taken you inside the human body, up to outer space, into the laboratories, and much more.
