Esplora Interactive Science Centre in Kalkara is opening its doors every evening this Christmas for a unique experience to be enjoyed by the whole family.

The Esplora Christmas Wonderland programme, running from December 8 to January 7 (both days included) from 6 to 10.30pm, will bring together the spirit of Christmas with the exciting world of science and technology.

Esplora prepared a trail containing 14 different stations, which starts even before entering the science centre. On arrival, visitors will be greeted by a special character, The Wise Elf who, through a special device, will entertain guests before they start their adventurous visit.

The activities, organised in collaboration with popular duo Danusan, include knowledge-sharing and hands-on experiences on how snow is formed, what Father Christmas does to keep healthy and not to continue getting any older than he already is.

Children will have the possibility to write a letter to Father Christmas and also participate in a game using special laser teams to train them to enter and pass through home chimneys. They will also discover how Father Christmas manages to deliver all those presents in one night.

There will be also informative sessions on how one can reduce waste during the festive celebrations and a traditional Christmas village has been set up in Villa Bighi.

Souvenir photos will be taken and then electronically sent directly to visitors.

More details about the programme can be found on the Esplora website. Tickets can be obtained here.
