Kids love this place they are in their element, trying out all the experiments, there is so much for them to see and participate in. There is also the planetarium as well as a cafe for food and drinks. Great day out.

Not sure about Saturday as I haven't been on a Saturday. The last time I went I didn't have access but they sell lots of different types of tickets and events so maybe best to ring them?
