Have a pint pulled by a robot, enjoy some chilling tunes and be part of a Halloween experience like no other.

See our Robots – then and now exhibition in a new (eerie) light, explore the North’s biggest planetarium and hop aboard the 4D Ride for some gruesome fun.

Channel your inner scientist in the Experiment Zone, decorate a Day of the Dead sugar skull, navigate the laser maze and be cyborged in the special effects make up area.
