A great place to bring the kids! Plenty of places for adults to sit and watch the kids run about and engage with the activities. We spent the morning here so we missed out on any of the Planetarium shows as they are only held in the afternoon which was a bit disappointing.

Last minute choice to visit but we weren't disappointed. My 2 year old and 6 year old had more than enough to occupy them and the outdoor play area is excellent (despite a couple of the apparatus being broke and cordoned off). Will be back!

If we had young children it would have got Excellent but as we were 2 adults we probably didn't get the pleasure of watching our children learn. Its £12.50 for adults & I thought was money well spent. The building, the ideology, the internal environment all encourage & give a better more physical understanding of today's knowledge

We thought this was a great museum, with something for everyone of all ages (we are in our 50s and had no children with us). We particularly liked the top floor "future" section and the older ground floor area (train, steam engines etc). Being children of the 60s and 70s there was also a lot of amusement in some of...

Just got back from a fantastic day, we were there from 10am to 5pm and still hadn't got around everything. So much interactive stuff, the kids loved it, as well as the digital planetarium and events. Plus you can use tesco vouchers so it only cost me £10 for a family of four. Have been to London Science Museum and... More

We came to the Think Tank with our Scout troop (23 Scouts aged 11 - 16) and they had a fabulous time. The staff were really helpful and welcoming, booking was very simple and the price was fantastic. The Scouts had a fantastic time with some exploring the whole museum, some finding an area of interest and remaining there and... More
