Took my boys aged 5 and 8 to the Science centre last week. Fun way to learn and entertain them for a morning. Watched the Bubbles and Balloons show. And the planetarium show. Everyone had an enjoyable time.

Always lots to look at, touch and do. Friendly staff, easy parking, many shows available. Best for children 5 and over . You can take your own food /snacks to save money. Takes about half a day to go around.
