Brilliant place to visit with or without the nippers. Loads of exhibits and activities and plenty of information to be absorbed. Will definitely be going back.

My little boy loved this place - especially the kids city. I, however, was not as impressed. From what i remember of the old science museum there was a lot more science!! it was a lot more interactive and you could do little science xperiments that were great fun. This new science museum is based more around technology and no... More

Teens and adults do not get as much out of the museum as younger kids. The content is good, but not as advanced as a teen might need. It is expensive, too.

Brilliant day out. Both me and my partner enjoyed it loads to do however comfy shoes are essential! The interactive displays are brilliant and great fun along with being informative. The small games on the way round were fun and became a bit of a competition. The staff were helpful I would recommend this site its worth a visit

As for the outdoor science garden best go in warmer weather as a lot are water based and the little streams are great for paddling in... More

i can recommend the Thinktank Science Museum. Plenty to see and do for both adults and children. Can spend a day quite happily here. There is a fee to get into this museum but if you pay online you will get the entrance fee cheaper.

Visited as 2 adults with a strong interest in science. It's all rather random (things we found near Birmingham!) and very dumbed down. We made the mistake of visiting during half term. The building acoustics are terrible and it was very noisy. I imagine children under the age of seven might enjoy this as the first taster of the possibilities... More
