We visited today with our two grandsons, aged 9 and 7, and can honestly say they were interested and entertained for the 5 hours we spent there ! We also enjoyed all the experiments and puzzles, many of which had us stumped. The staff were lovely and there to help when needed. The Bubbles and Bangs show was very entertaining.... More

We visited today with 2 children aged 6 and 9, 2 seniors and an adult. What excellent value for a great time. Well worth a visit. We all enjoyed participating in the many hands on exhibits as well as watching the bangs and bubbles show. Will definitely be revisiting again soon.

Visited today with a 10, 9 and 6 year old. There are plenty of activities for different ages but they are more tailored for younger ones under 7's I would say. The show was good all the kids enjoyed. You could probably stay here for a max of 2 hours which with the price is quite rubbish. I don't see... More

I have visited many times with groups of children. I would say it it a good visit as a one off but if your children have been with school and they are 8+ don't bother going again, nothing changes and it gets boring for them. There doesn't seem to ever be any changes in what's available for them to try... More

I went to techniquest with my daughter and she loved it, especially the mirror maze! We brought a packed lunch, then bought a Twix each. Fun science show - even though my daughter was too nervous to take part in the experiments in the show, she sat back, laughed, and had a fab time! She got stuck on one of... More

This is a great place for children of all ages (3 to 93)!! Such a lot to do and the "Bubbles and Bangs" show was great. Almost a week on and our 4 year old grandson is still talking about it!! Staff were very friendly and helpful. We will definitely return!

Our six year old asked to visit on Sunday afternoon. We have visited before but the difference between then and now was marked. All of the exhibits were clean and working, there were new items to explore. The show was entertaining and educational. We will be visiting again.
