The Old Mutual-MTN ScienCentre, located at the popular Gateway Theatre of Shopping, is a world class science centre providing excellence in a unique combination of education and entertainment, making science accessible to all in a fun and innovative way. The Sciencentre exposes both the young and old to aspects of science, with an interesting variety of over a hundred interactive displays.

You can learn about sound waves while communicating from the other side of the room with a whisper dish, or take a peek into the interesting world of physics with the popular human gyroscope. Budding architects can take advantage of the kids-only construction site, and design and construct the latest architectural masterpieces. The ScienCentre also offers a wide range of challenging and fun puzzles which are sure to put the young one's minds to test as well as a brand new Planetarium which promises to take you on an adventure like you haven’t experienced before!

The ScienCentre also offers a Friends Club membership, an affordable option for everyone to visit the ScienCentre as many times as they want to during the year, as well as pre-booked school visits and group tours.
