Wonderlab parties

Where better for your child to spend their birthday than in Wonderlab: The Statoil Gallery, our new interactive gallery for 7–14-year-olds that encourages children to discover the wonder of science.

Children get hands-on with real scientific phenomena through awe-inspiring experiments and captivating interactives. They can race their friends on our giant friction slide, see clouds form in front of their eyes, travel through space under a canopy of stars, and catch one of our fantastic Wonderlab science shows.

Wonderlab Parties take place on weekday evenings year-round and weekends during term time, meaning you can pick the best time and activities to suit you.
