Interesting day out. Kids loved it. Didn't take too long to get around there though. Food was great value for money. Shame the outdoor area was closed off at the time.

The Thinktank Science Museum is the perfect place for a family day out. There are many interactive exhibits which children will love. Worth travelling for and the price is definetly worth it. I would recommend planning to visit for at least 3 hours as there is a lot to do.

There is so much to see, hear and touch in this place that although it was expensive if you stay for a full day then it doesn't seem quite so bad. We arrived at the start of the day and zoomed into the distance to access the parts I knew would become ridiculously busy later and included an early trip... More

Good 4 to 5 hours of fun. Used Tesco day out vouchers so saved on the 39 pound family ticket. Remined me of a mix between Eureka in Halifax and Mosi in Manchester. Lost the kids immediately to the water area on level 2. Enjoyed most of exhibitions but as others said some where out of order. Disapointed by the... More

We visited on Sunday 22 Feb with 3 kids aged 14, 11 & 6. There is plenty to look at & get your hands on. We read comments on trip advisor & were worried about our visit. However, we found it interesting & not too busy with it being the last day of half term. There were quite a few... More

We visited today (19/2/15) with our two children. I should have turned around before we entered as the unruly kids and their "couldn't give a toss" parents started in the queue to get in. But, we persevered and duly handed over £39 to enter what was a noisy, cramped, unorganised attraction. We headed up to the top floor to start... More

Have to agree with Poppy. First of all and obviously not down to the venue Groupon do not make it clear the excluded dates so on arrival annoyed having to pay again. However onwards and upwards and in my family went. Loads of things to see and interact with but an alarming amount either not functioning properly or completely not... More

I had a 4,8 and a 9 year old with me and my sisters son 3 and my 12 year old cousin. It's halfterm, it's absolutely packed. The first floor there are buggys everywhere. Complete chaos. The further in you go tho thankfully the crowds disperse slightly. The main reason for my review was to moan about the fact that... More

Just had an amazing day out at the Think Tank in Birmingham, there was plenty to do for all the family. My children were very impressed by the staff and University students who spent time showing them different experiments.

We visited here on Monday in February half term and throughly enjoyed ourselves. Me and my 2.5 year old spent 6.5 hours here! I was a little worried from reading some of the reviews that it wouldn't have enough going on or interesting enough for my little one but I was happily surprised she was throughly entertained throughout!!
