One of their brand-new events is named What Santa Sees, which is sure to be an instant hit with curious children.

What Santa Sees will allow children to journey to the North Pole and explore Santa Claus’s view from the sky on Christmas Eve, via a captivating 360-dome show.

The immersive animated show, which has been produced by Life Science Centre’s in-house team, will transport children to a twinkling wonderland as they follow Santa and his reindeer across the night sky.

What Santa Sees will premiere at Life Science Centre on Saturday, November 11 and run throughout the festive period.
