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 and answered all of the questions put to him. Highly recommended.

Like all attractions that involve kids, this is a noisy, hectic place! The shows are free and very good, staff very helpful and the exhibits are great. It's not the place to go with a shy kid or frail elderly relative....it's banging! We had a great hour or so (7 year old grandson). He thought it was great and ran... More

We had a fabulous afternoon at this place, I took my two youngest age 7 and 9, we were all challenged with some of the exhibits a real hands on experience, we found the place clean and friendly, on a number of occasions we were approached by staff members to assist us. I totally recommend this place to entertain the... More

Visited here yesterday with a seven year old Science fan and we all absolutely loved it! Excellent value for money and the staff were highly enthusiastic and made the experience more interesting and interactive. Social mention has to be made for the two 'Tonys' who presented the Science experiment show in the theatre. They were enthusiastic and lively and made... More

Went today and three adults a 12yr old and 13yr old and had a fab time. Lots to do and some very amusing things to try. A few hours well spent. Clean and every exhibit was working which is a nice change from other places. Busy but not too bad adults enjoyed it as much as the kids.

2 children both aged 6 had a blast. Spent a few hours in there. Think I had as much fun as them even our 1yr old was entertained especially with the water! Staff really helpful. Would definitely visit again.

We visited without any children and still had a very good time. We spent about 4 hours here and thoroughly enjoyed every minute. We liked the Easter Eggstravaganza show and the planetarium was also excellent. Highly recommended for any visitors. We want to return!

If your looking for something that is informative, fun and (at times) challenging then you gotta come here. This is what the scuencw museum in London should be much more like.

Spent a couple of hours here with my wife and 5-year old, really good fun, loads of experiments to try and lots to learn. We attended one of the shows in the mini planetarium and had the place to ourselves, guy running it made a tricky subject interesting for my daughter. Lots of staff on hand to help with the... More

What a great place, especially young children. The interactive exhibits are brilliant whilst educational and scientific. The kids loved it. Great shows and the staff so helpful, even spending time explaining things. A must see
