We mount themed exhibitions throughout the summer months, which are designed to stimulate,
entertain and educate the public.
We run a very popular series of monthly lectures on a wide variety of subjects. We
are also developing an education programme, aimed at encouraging young people to
consider a career in science and engineering.
Although the exhibition is closed from October to April, you can still come and meet
us. You will find our volunteers at work on various projects every Wednesday and
Saturday between 11 am and 4 pm. Just ring the doorbell!
If you wish to visit at other times, please phone 01592 874836 or email email@example.com,
to make arrangements.
