This is our second visit. The last was a year and a half ago. Enough has changed to make it interesting and much of what we loved is still there. The hands on nature of the activity is really appealing to my kids who range from 4-11. There is also a special area for the little ones. The cafe serves a range of food and can cater for gluten free. Don’t forget to check if you have reciprocal rights with membership from you local museum or science place.

Visited on Easter Sunday and the museum was very busy. The layout and galleries will keep kids busy and they have a special area for the little ones to get even more hands on. I would recommend at least 3hrs for a family visit.

Great place for kids. Plenty of hands on activities to keep them entertained. You could probably easily spend a full day here if your kids are 6-10.
Probably wouldn't recommend for kids 13+ though, it's more designed for the younger ages.

Ever wondered how things work? You’ll probably find the answer here. Well laid-out and hands-on exhibits. The inspiring staff will fascinate children. Make sure you leave yourself plenty of time as there is so much to see and do.
