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.
