Home Education: Wonderlab Visit

Ignite curiosity in science and maths in our interactive gallery and watch an inspiring science show, a must-do for age 7 upwards.

The Wonderlab experience has been adapted to adhere to Government guidelines, ensuring your home educating visit is safe and enjoyable.

Home educating families are eligible to apply for up to five education tickets for free admission into Wonderlab: The Equinor Gallery on weekdays during term time.

We are currently booking for visits on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 19 May to 16 July 2021. In this period we are offering ten free home education tickets per day; five in each of the 10.45 or 11.00 timeslots on term time.

Although we allocate 60 minutes for your Wonderlab session, you can stay as long as you like. 

You can apply for up to five free education tickets for your own family. At least one of your children must be aged 5+ to qualify for free education admission to Wonderlab. One free education visit per academic year, per family.

If you want to visit with another family we will do our best to accommodate you into the adjacent timeslots. However slots are booking quickly so we cannot guarantee this. 

If you would like to visit more regularly, please consider purchasing a Wonderlab annual pass.



The Wonder Show

As part of your Wonderlab visit you can request tickets for our action-packed Wonder Show at 11.30.

The Wonder Show  is a journey into the excitement and curiosity of science and maths, lasting approximately 25 minutes.

Tickets cost £2.50 per child.
