Stricter guidelines

As for now we are taking all precautionary measures to make the experience at LAVA Centre as safe as possible.
In the light of stricter guidelines from the Directorate of Health we have reinstalled part of the interactive exhibition on a auto-run mode, meaning no physical contact is needed with the exhibits.

Disinfection dispensers at LAVA Centre
We take pride in having some of the highest rated and cleanest lavatories on the South Coast. We have doubled the amount of soap and disinfectant dispenser in the lavatories and increased the frequency of cleaning. We have also added disinfectant dispensers all over the centre. Inside every room in the exhibition, in the foyer, the gift shop and the café. The staff routinely disinfects all touch points such as credit card terminals, touch screens and door handles. We also provide disposable gloves if our guests prefer gloves.

During this period our staff will keep a distance of a few feet/ two meters and avoid handshakes and other physical contact. We hope this does not affect your experience in a negative way.
