this is quite an expensive attraction, 12pounds per adult when we visited in December. It is well conceived and designed on its 4 floors with a good variety of exhibits. It does seem to have a problem explaining what it is - it is a science museum - but it does have a lot of interesting interactive features which makes... More

Think tank is exactly what the name says! There is so much to learn, to see, to guess and to wonder, that one day is really not enough! That is the reason monthly/yearly passes are offered which I feel are worth every penny! This place has something for everybody and every age! At the entrance kids are offered activity packs...

The wife and I took our grandson and he loved it. There were plenty of interactive things to keep him occupied and I was like a kid in a sweetshop when we got to the transport hall. I can thoroughly recommend a visit here, it's excellent!

A good idea was an area set aside where you could consume your own food and drink,unlike other... More

A good family day out and my kids still talk about it now. Very interactive, although this is mainly for the top floors and the outside area (which they loved) and most of the exhibits are very good; the kids especially like the human body bit and the animal sections. Bottom floor was a bit overly steam engine related, but... More

We took our two children, we were staying in Waterloo street and was easy and quick enough to get to, though more signposts would have helped. They enjoyed playing in the outside garden (as did I). We went in the afternoon so only had a few hours before closing, so we only really got to see one floor, as the... More
