The Steno, a science museum in University Park, is superb for its size and a pleasure to visit. Perhaps the interactive exhibit that attracts the most attention is the one about pregnancy that includes a womb that small children can climb into. During school vacations...More

A really interesting science museum featuring science over the past many hundreds of years. Many things you can test or 'play' with. There is also a garden with medicinal herbs.
