Going Places

Climb aboard a flight simulator, try your luck at sailing a land yacht or test your skills controlling the traffic flow of a city. Our new Sciencentre exhibition, Going Places, invites you to take on a series of challenges to discover the science behind transport and travel. With over 20 exhibits detailing the incredible technology pioneered by humans to make the farthest reaches of our planet accessible, Going Places promises to be a wild ride!
