Something for everyone

From as little as 100 square metres of space our exhibitions transport our visitors to new horizons of possibility.

We work year round to inspire people and relate science, technology, engineering and maths to the world around them. Tinkering, playing and getting hands-on with our intriguing exhibits, we fire everyone’s imagination, regardless of their age.

Whether you are mad about science and want to celebrate your birthday with us or are looking for a perfect gift and keen to browse our array of cool gadgets, science experiments and toys in the shop, we can help at Cambridge Science Centre.
