Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I become a Member?
Membership is the BEST way to visit for free as often as you'd like, get tons of great benefits and SAVE! The Science Centre boasts over 600 hands-on exhibits and activities to enjoy!

With the many temporary exhibitions, IMAX® films, special events, daily live science demonstrations and our popular, ever-changing programs you can easily spend many more days here and always discover something new. Not bad when you consider a Membership usually pays for itself in just 2 visits
