School Visits to Doctor Who Worlds of Wonder

Visit our Doctor Who World of Wonder exhibition with your class. Bookings are now open.

Introduction to the exhibition

A thrilling exploration of the science behind the long-running hit series, Doctor Who, for fans and newcomers alike.

Doctor Who Worlds of Wonder features eight zones filled with immersive, hands-on experiences. Travel through the Time Vortex Corridor, discover Sonic Screwdrivers, teleportation technology and much more in a TARDIS Tech room, and get up close with some of the series' weird and wonderful creatures in the Monster Vault.

This must-see exhibition brings a scientific perspective to The Doctor's adventures, drawing on content from across the full canon of Doctor Who. Is time travel possible? Could complex life exist on other planets? And what would you sound like as a Dalek?

Join us for the Scottish premiere of this ground-breaking exhibition. It's bigger on the inside!
