Catalyst Science Discovery Centre makes science and technology really come to life in three award winning galleries. Scientrific on the ground floor is a hands-on, interactive gallery for the whole family. Birth of an Industry on the first floor houses the museum element of the centre supported by an amazing collection of material and life-like reconstructions. The rooftop Observatory gallery affords stunning views from the Welsh hills to the Pennines and is accessed by the wonderful scenic glass lift which reaches 30 metres above the River Mersey. Take an unforgettable journey of discovery in the Alchemy Theatre. Interactive films with 3D and individual voting makes each showing unique! During term time Catalyst specialises in curriculum based activities for schools but at weekends and during the holidays the whole family can join in the special hands-on workshops. Science has never been so much fun!
