I liked what was here but there were too many exhibits not working and areas where things were planned but not built. Also some unclear areas - were we allowed to do 3D printing? Who knows.

Our kids love this place. Reasonably priced especially if you buy the annual passport. Really interesting place that keeps us adults entertained too!

Family visit here with 11 year old and 19 year old. They loved all the hands on exhibits and found it fascinating. It was a shame there were exhibits upstairs being refurbished so they were unavailable. Great trip and would revisit. Kept my husband busy...More
