I took my daughters to Techniquest today for the first time. I am totally amazed by this place. My Daughters had a super time, playing hands-on with all the equipment and displays, learning about science as they do so. All the other children also looked like they were having lots of fun too. The demonstration (Winter Wonders) was both fun... More

this place is great fun and educational for both kids and adults...being an adult, you should really let the kids go first, but no chance when we were there! Couldn't wait to try things out...gets quite busy in there so prepare for a little queuing ...kids love it so its noisy but lovely atmosphere and undercover.

During school holidays and at weekends at other times we have interactive live science shows which our young visitors love! Approximately each month there is a different show so repeat visits are always enioyable - and with an Annual Pass return visits are free! More
