The Science Zone
Something For Everyone
The Science Zone is an exciting Science Discovery Centre for families and children, sponsored by Science Dome UK planetarium company, based in the centre of the historic Royal Arcade in Boscombe, Bournemouth.
We are the only permanent open planetarium in Dorset for the public to visit. This advanced 4K digital planetarium shows real terrain of the Earth and the planets, even simulating the landing on Mars and the Moon. Great for Adults Shows and families to learn about space and the stars, and many of our shows are different to view including our popular 'Dinosaur Show' in the dome.
The centre offers visitors access to science 'zones', where each zone has a variety of activities and features that will both stimulate and inspire children to learn more about the world around them. From life-size dinosaurs, planetarium shows, musical bubble columns to digging for fossils and explosive experiments, every visitor, both large and small, will be entertained as well as educated. Also as the only registered telescope distributor in Bournemouth, there are state-of-the art Visionary telescopes and binoculars on offer for star and planet gazing as well as marine observing. It's perfect if you're looking for something that's educational as well as fun for your child. There's something here for everyone!
We are open from Monday to Satuday from 10am-4pm.
