Plenty of things for kids to do and learn. Great for rainy days.

“Interesting, but aimed at children”
Reviewed 4 March 2012

We enjoyed our visit, and was great to get your hands on to exhibits. If you are science minded you wont learn anything new here, but you may see things explained in a different, sometimes better way you may have learnt yourself. This place is for kids and families and a great way to introduce them to what makes the world around us work.

“Excellent fun and educational too...”
Reviewed 3 March 2012

Always a good day of fun and discovery but don't go on a school holiday if you can avoid it as it's usually packed and then it's not so easy to get to use the displays

“Fun for the whole family”
Reviewed 2 March 2012

The interactive exhibits are good, playful fun for children (best ages, 6-12) but grown-ups can learn a lot too. On the downside, it's quite pricey, over £20 for a family of 4, and has become a venue for children's birthday parties, with the accompaying tannoy announcements and the smell of stale chips.

“A very good educational centre for all the family”
Reviewed 28 February 2012

Techniquest is a good day out for all the family, we were pleased to see that it had improved since our last visit, with new exhibits and they now have shows, where children are entertained with science. We watched the bubble science show which our children loved. Staff were entertaining and eager to please.
