Visit the Science Oxford Centre for spookily fun science and woodland pumpkin trail for all the family this half term.

22nd, 25th, 26th, 27th, 29th October 2022

Explore, discover and play together in the Exploration Zone, where children and grown-ups alike have fun experimenting with interactive exhibits; create and test flying ghouls at the Air Table, magically send material (or is it ectoplasm?) flying through the pipework at the Scarf Shooter, and see the world change before your very eyes with our Curious Camera.

Go on a Halloween Pumpkin Trail and explore the mysterious woodland for magical mini-beasts, or imagine what lurks in the depths of the perilous ponds.

Create your own gruesome experiments at our Live Lab, with demos and hands-on science activities  – spooky-scientist outfits optional.

Pick up an Explorer Backpack (thanks to Operation Earth) and don’t forget our Water Lab is open until the end of October!

What is included in your ticket:

  • Two-hour timeslot in the Exploration Zone
  • Access to the woodland and outdoor areas from 10am–5pm
  • Access to the outdoor Water Lab – change of clothes recommended
