The Life Science Centre, or the Centre for Life as it is better known, is a great place to visit at the best of times, but especially on a wet weather day. We visited with our four and nine year old and they both loved it. The best parts were the 4D ride and the dinosaur display with the animated models. There is also a great play area upstairs for under sevens that kept our son occupied. This was great because there are age and height restrictions on some of the activities.
What I also thought was great about the centre was that the cafe is reasonably priced with ample seating. There is also an indoor picnic area with lots of seating downstairs in order to help keep the cost of the day out affordable. This would also be great for children with special dietary requirements.
We found a four hour stay sufficient because our kids got tired due to the interactive nature of the exhibits and the general hustle and bustle. We probably covered half of the things to do in this time.
Overall, a great day out, especially when the rain sets in.
