It was a very exile rating day. It is very to spend all day there and I pritty much did I would recommend it. There is a lot to do and for young people there are even pushchair parks so it is very family friendly! Highly recommended.

I am a childminder and took a group of four young children here. I tried to find a map of the venue online before we went, but was unable to. We were given one as we entered the complex, on the back of which was an updated time table of the daily events. The ones on the web site appear... More

went here with my 5 year old son and his two friends who were the same age and their 11 year old brother. This was our first trip to the Thinktank. There was absolutely loads of hands on stuff for the kids to do. Will go again to make sure we have done everything there is to do. My only... More

Went to the Think Tank today while my wife and daughter went to the bull ring which is only a few minutes away. We had a great time especially the outdoor exhibits and it was an easy and cheap distraction for a few hours. Obviously it's a lot smaller than London but still lots to do. Over 12's will be...

We came here years ago I seem to remember it rather more fondly than perhaps it deserves. Though maybe with an 8 year old it is a bit more exciting. With a 13 year old it was all rather dull. It is dark and not very attractive. The exhibits are a bit too dumbed down - Why do we wear... More

This is a great museum for all ages. There are so many interactive things for children (and adults) and the new science garden is also fantastic. I've been a few times and could always have stayed for longer. Worth the price of admission!

Thinktank is a must place to bring our grandchildren which we have been doing for around ten years. However the first visit for two of our grandchildren was disappointing. In the first section about recycling two of the interactive exhibits were not working and this set the tone for the rest of the visit. Too many things were broken including... More

We visited the museum on a Tuesday in School Holidays. We do not have children so I'm sure some of you may find this review funny. There was not a big queue to get in and we got 25% off by using a vouchercloud app. The museum has lots of interactive pieces and catered for young children in many areas.... More

so we walked to think tank, found the entrance confusing not many people around like ourselves, it seemed to be all school trips and uni students. 2 adults and 1 child £28 this was ok although we read in the brochure that we could have got in for £3 each after 3pm....some good exhibits very clean would recommend it for...
