Wonderlab Parties

Where better for your child to spend their birthday than in Wonderlab: The Statoil Gallery, our new interactive gallery for 7–14 year olds that encourages children to discover the wonder of science.

Children get hands-on with real scientific phenomena through awe-inspiring experiments and captivating interactives. They can race their friends on our giant friction slide, see clouds form in front of their eyes, travel through space under a canopy of stars and catch one of our fantastic Wonderlab science shows.
