Important Announcement


Due to a lack of funding, and with Harlow Council deciding to take the running of Harlow Museum and Walled Gardens back in house, we have had no choice but close the Science Alive centre with immediate effect.

The Museum is due to re-open w/c 21st January 2019. For further details on the museum visit

For further details for museum enquiries and access to the museum please contact is Angela Street  (   01279 446302 at Harlow Council.

A spokesperson for Science Alive said:

“It was with regret that we decided last week that we had no choice but to close the Science Alive centre and charity. While we are pleased to hear that the Museum will remain open, we have been unable to secure sufficient funding to keep Science Alive going.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all the staff and volunteers who have been working so hard to keep these two vital community assets alive, and hope this won’t be the end of STEM opportunities for young people of Harlow to be inspired. “
