Science Week has arrived at World Museum in Liverpool

World Museum Liverpool ‘s Science Week will be making memories for families, with fun scientific events and experiments to “inspire and amaze”.

Visitors can blast their way through a giant inflatable intestine, learn about poo at the “poo-station”, and even test if their hands are stronger than an alligator’s bite.

Due to take place during March 11 – March 20, there will be a lot more activities planned and it is absolutely free.

The museum’s recently refurbished planetarium has shows for all ages to discover the vastness and wonder of the universe.

The team will be taking a closer look at endangered animals in “Up Close with… Animals”, with incredible stories and handling collections, for you to explore and enjoy.

Leila Gwynne, participation programme manager at National Museums Liverpool, said: “This is going to be a great week and I can’t wait for families to come and see what we’ve got on.

“Meet the Scientist on March 19 is going to be amazing fun but parents, rest assured, there’s loads of science too, sneakily added to brilliant, interactive activities.

“We’re a year-round science and natural history museum, with a family focus at World Museum.”

She added: “So Science Week is also great to remind everyone about our regular planetarium shows for stargazing and ‘Up Close with…’ sessions that use handling objects to bring visitors closer to our collections, which include everything from dinosaurs to space.”

This year’s Science Week activities come as World Museum ramps up to host the world premiere of Doctor Who: Worlds of Wonder – a thrilling new interactive exhibition exploring the world of science within the universe of Doctor Who.



Doctor Who World of Wonder is coming in May, tickets are available now

Doctor Who Worlds of Wonder exhibition will see visitors engage with original artefacts, sets and much more – discovering the science that weaves its way through the history of the world’s longest running action-adventure TV show.

Doctor Who’s newest companion Dan Lewis is played by Liverpool comedian John Bishop, who was welcomed aboard the Tardis last year.

With the Jodie Whitaker’s incarnation of the Doctor coming to an end later this year for the BBC centenary special, we are left wondering if the Tardis will land one final time in our brilliant city.

It is possible to meet one of the Doctor’s arch nemeses, the Daleks, at the atrium of the World Museum.
