Hours of Operation

Online Admission Tickets

You can now purchase admission tickets online before arriving at the Discovery Centre. For members this will mean selecting the ‘member’ ticket type for each family member coming to the Centre. 

Tickets are only valid for the timeslot purchased (9:00am-12:00pm or 1:00pm-4:00pm). You may arrive at any time during your timeslot, however, in order to give staff time to clean during the changeover, all visitors must leave at the end of their timeslot, regardless of when they arrived.  

Tickets are not transferable to another time or date.
