We had planned to spend an hour or two here. We spend most of the day and it was well worth it. Lots of hands on fun for the kids. Really enjoyed the day and it was a highlight of our trip!!!!

The best part was the 3D movie which was the best we have seen ever. The science centre itself is worth a visit and takes about 3hrs to explore. Definitely great for kids.

We had a great visit with an 11 year-old, a 13-year-old and two parents. We all found things that fascinated us. We easily spent several hours there. We only visited the exhibits, and there was plenty to see and do.

The museum offers the most hands on stuff I have ever seen in a museum. The audio visual, CSI and tools were brilliant fun and were adults. The kids around us seemed to be having a whale of a time and you could easily spend...More
