Cape Town Science Centre hosts free day

The Cape Town Science Centre is one of our all time favourite places. There is always an abundance of activities taking place, with so much to see and do that you’ll heed a few more visits to take it all in.

We try to visit often and especially over the holidays.

Yesterday the Centre held a Free entry day thanks to the Western Cape Education Department and we took Hamish and his friend to visit.

It was buzzing with people from the minute we arrived and I over heard a lady at reception mention that there were 200 – 300 people already by 11am.


What a wonderful turnout!

The Science centre is popular all year round and I normally try to visit during school times in a morning to enjoy a calmer, quieter visit . ( you can tell we homeschool) Our weekend and holiday visits have always been full, but yesterday was the most people I’ve personally ever seen at the center.

It’s great to see so many parents enjoying this fantastic space with their kids.

A morning of Science 

FREE ENTRY to the Cape Town Science Centre was held yesterday, on Tuesday, 26 March 2024

With the Cape Towns Science Center’s Animal Superpowers holiday programme officially underway, the public were invited to visit for Free for this Open Day.

A special schedule for the day, comprising of hands-on workshops, interactive demonstrations, tours, and three science shows was set out and kids and their parents had an abundance of activities to choose from.

The highlight of the day was the SNAKE SHOW which was presented by the Reptile Garden. Topics included the three most venomous snakes as well as some more mildly venomous snakes that are found in our country. The kids also heard about the harmless species you may encounter and a few lucky ( or brave) kids had the opportunity to touch them.

If you missed the Free entry day you can still join the Animal Superpowers holiday programme which runs until Tuesday, 2 April 2024.
