Explore the natural world with Gilbert White & The Oates Collections. 

Gilbert White & The Oates Collections celebrates the lives of three explorers of the natural world. The historic house was the home of the eighteenth century pioneering naturalist Gilbert White; whose major work The Natural History of Selborne has never been out of print since its publication in 1789. The House is surrounded by 25 acres of majestic restored garden and parkland, which specialises in eighteenth century plants and gardening methods inspired by Gilbert White.

The Museum is also home to the Oates Collections where visitors can discover the stories of the nineteenth century explorer Frank Oates, who travelled extensively around Africa and Central America and the heroic Captain Lawrence Oates. The Collection commemorates the life of Lawrence Oates, who travelled with Scott to the South Pole on the epic yet ill fated Terra Nova Expedition of 1912.

This unique and diverse, interactive Museum also boasts a fantastic café which serves food throughout the day, a well-stocked gift shop and outdoor plant sales.

Winchester Science Centre is more than a day out. It’s a chance to spark your children’s curiosity in science which could lead them on an exciting journey for life! Situated in the stunning South Downs National Park, this exciting family destination is the South of England’s hands-on, interactive science and technology centre with the largest standalone planetarium in the UK. Book General Admission online at least three days in advance to save 25%!

Hands-on exhibition

There are lots of interactive exhibits to explore, aiming to spark curiosity in all the family and bring the worlds of science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) to life. The Science Centre is also home to Explorer:Space, an awe-inspiring, immersive space zone where your family can take an epic journey through the Solar System and learn about all things space, from meteorites to human space flight. Be sure to visit the Invention Studio, a place where you can create, construct and be challenged with the help of friendly Inspirers.

Included in admission every weekend and school holiday are explosive live science shows together with hands-on activities and challenges focused around popular themes. These themes are fun and quirky, serving as a great introduction to the inspiring world of science for children and their families.

Planetarium

The planetarium offers an unforgettable experience. The 360° cinema screen completely surrounds the audience, placing everyone right in the action. Relax back in your seat and get sucked into a black hole, fly through the Solar System or take a flight in a cardboard rocket.

There are two different show formats – fulldome films, which are high-quality, digital pre-recorded animations, and live shows during which a presenter takes you on a tour through space.

The Science Centre also offers three different show environments to ensure that everyone can enjoy the planetarium.

Quiet shows are for those who would prefer a quiet environment to enjoy the planetarium experience. There are also relaxed shows, designed to be welcoming and inviting to those with sensory sensitives and their loved ones. Adjustments include lights left on low, sound turned down and freedom to move around.
