Great fun day out for the kids, they absolutely loved it. Does get busy during peak times which means a lot of waiting around for actives, try and go in quieter times.

We took the grandchildren here during the Easter break and we all had a great time. I particularly wanted to see the Planetarium, which was great. They do several shows a day and tailor them to the ages of the children visiting so they are...More

We took our young grandchildren here and they loved it. Mind you the bigger kids liked it as well. A good way to introduce children to technology.

An ideal venue for your grandkids of all ages. And a season ticket gives you and them endless fun . Book for the special presentations as you go in. All free.

It was packed out on the day we went and a number of exhibits were broken. BUT!! The live shows and planetarium were excellent and made fighting our way round worth it. Get in early and book your show times as they fill up fast...More

Visited recently with our grandson who is 15 months old. We thought he may be too young, but as it was raining went anyway. Really great day and there was more than enough to keep the little one active and occupied. Mind you he wore...More

We got some half price tickets so nipped in on a whim and spent several hours here. The interpretation is very good with loads of stuff to drip feed the kids about technology and science. The guy doing the planetarium was superb. Knew his stuff...More
