The Cape Town Science Centre officially opened its doors at its new premises in Observatory on December 28, 2011, with a mission to make a hands-on contribution
to South Africa’s future by strengthening its science and technology culture through interactive methods of teaching.

The centre attracts between 126 000 and 138 000 visitors annually, and has more than 300 permanent interactive exhibits.

Visitors can expect a wide variety of interactive entertainment at the centre. From science shows to curriculum-based workshops and science camps, there is loads on offer. Make sure you visit the new outdoor area to see how the centre uses science to save water by harvesting rainwater; you can also test your adversaries on the giant chess set.

The Cape Town Science Centre offers free internet access to all visitors.

The centre is open Monday – Saturday from 09h00 to 16h30; and 10h00 to 16h30 on Sunday and  Public Holidays. Entry costs R40 for adults, student and children three to 18; R20 for pensioners; and R35 each for groups of 10 or more and must be booked in advance. Take advantage of the annual membership fees, which allow unlimited entry to the centre for a year. Membership fees range from R245 for a single person to R645 for a group of four.

Ratanga Junction

Picture this ... You’re strapped into your seat, hanging under the track of a looping roller coaster that’s hurtling down a twisting track at about 100km/h. Screams fill the air, and you’re not sure you’ll live to savour the memories ... If that sounds like fun to you, then Ratanga Junction’s the place you need to be!

Cape Town kids

Keeping children occupied over weekends and during school holidays is always a challenge for busy parents, but those on holiday in Cape Town have a wide choice when it comes to entertaining their little ones.
