Catalyst - Science discovery centre and museum visit + afternoon tea

19th April 10:00 to 16:00
Come and Explore the Catalyst museum to see displays about the chemical industry development and enjoy an afternoon tea.

Come and explore the development of the Chemical Industry from ancient times up to the 1940s with reconstructed scenes and archive films. Beginning with early civilisation, the exhibition looks at the use of natural pigments, dyes and new technology concerning the use of materials. It considers the importance of the industrial revolution, the introduction of health and safety laws and looks at some of the great discoveries of the past. Travel 30m above the river Mersey in the external glass lift to the glass walled observatory gallery, the perfect place to enjoy a tasty afternoon tea whilst admiring the riverside views….

There are limited spaces available, so we would recommend booking soon. Deadline for booking 12 April.
