Owner description: Starting in the Gallifrey Museum, take part in an interactive adventure with the Twelfth Doctor before stepping behind the scenes of your adventure into the largest collection of props, costumes and sets from this iconic show. A must for Doctor Who fans of all ages.

Upon learning of the impending closure of the exhibition, we simply had to make a farewell pilgrimage.
The exhibition in Wales'capital City had been a must visit site. It has loads of carefully selected exhibits to entrance Whovians of all ages and to introduce the new commers to the wonderful world of the Doctor.
We will miss this exhibition greatly and remember it with considerable fondness.

According to my wife, who is a long standing big fan of Dr Who, it was a thoroughly enjoyable experience. It was a positive experience for me too, even though I don’t follow the programme at all.

It is a popular venue, and we had to spend one and a half hours wandering about Cardiff Bay before we were allowed in.

Lots of signs to it and even a stop on the hop on hop off bus tour. It’s closed. Don’t know why but apparently it’s a permanent closure!!!

Being in the area of Cardiff I was entertaining the thought of revisiting the Doctor Who Experience. After arriving at the port I noticed the building seemed to be enveloped in a stasis field. When I asked about it I was told the Experience had closed. Rumor has it that it may reopen in London and that in its place there at the port a new hotel was being considered for the land. If true, what a shame as the building from a distance gives the impression of a whale waiting for high tide.

Been a big fan for a very long time. Was dying to get to see the place however never had the chance. My partner brought me here as it was about to close. Very good however, merch was limited and could have done a lot more due to it closing. The tour and tour guide was excellent. Disappointed it is gone. Good day out overall. Upset I couldn’t by the ticket and merch package.
