Magna Science Adventure Centre is set in the former Templeborough steelworks in South Yorkshire. It is a vast building, a third of a mile long and 150 feet high. Four pavilions house over 100 hands-on exhibits themed on Air, Earth, Fire and Water, the ‘elements’ needed for making steel, where you can discover science, technology and the region’s industrial heritage. The spectacular Big Melt Show re-creates the story of the steelworks and fabulous outdoor play facilities make for a great day out.
Magna is a coats-on experience, please wear clothes suitable for outside temperatures.
Following flooding in early November, Air, Earth, Fire and Water Pavilions and the Big Melt are now working normally. The lifts in the exhibition area remain out of action. The Air and Earth Pavilions are only accessible via the stairs. The lifts should be operational again by early April.
Everyone enjoys an opportunity to play and you’ll be in your element creating your own adventure. There is plenty to see and do at Magna, listed below are links to help you plan your visit. Please check our opening times before travelling. We have lots of free onsite car parking.
