Easter fun at Woolsthorpe Manor

Hands-on science activities at Woolsthorpe Manor

Go galactic with us at Woolsthorpe Manor this Easter holidays. Celebrate our Year of Space with space investigations, ‘Spring into Space’ workshops and gingerbread astronauts!

Launch yourself into a space-themed paper trail around the site, available throughout the Easter break. 

Once that mission is complete, you can test Newton’s theories in our hands-on Science Centre. Explore Newton’s laws of Motion and get dazzled in our Light Workshop. Find out whether gravity works for everything in the same way. Our science volunteers can help you to work out why it does (or doesn't).

Still searching for more science? Join us for one of our weekend hands-on 'Spring into Space' workshops.

Science is much more fun when you investigate, test and experiment for yourself.  Curious minds can take part in experiments around the site, from firing a rocket and marshmallows in vacuum tubes to taste testing space food!  Child tickets are £3.

Please note that we will not be running the Cadbury Chocolate Easter Trail.
