We popped into here as it was part of the city card free attractions. It is similar to the Eden project and Sea World, but on a smaller scale, but with a Science/Space section too. Thoroughly enjoyable, children will love it.

We visited as 3 adults and 2 children aged 7 and 4. There was something for every one of us and we felt we got our moneys worth.

Hello. What size are the lockers in Universeum? We'll be checking out of our hotel and was wondering if we can store a small carry on luggage in there. Thanks.

I agree better to keep it in Hotel. The lockers are smaller so your bags might not fit in. You can keep the same in central station as well.
