Having previously visited Techniquest Cardiff with a group of school children, I wanted my own children to experience Techniquest. Both children (2 and 5 year olds) had really enjoyed the Techniquest attractions at the recent Meifod Eisteddfod 2015. So the last day of school holidays took us to Wrexham, a mere half hour drive. A smashing day: excellent activities, extremely... More

Had a great few hours at Techniquest. My 7 yr old son is still talking about it days later. So many hands on experiences and learning opportunities. Staff lovely and helpful. Well worth a trip.

Spent a good 5 hours there a few weeks ago. Opens at 10am. could spend an hour in each section and then there are different science shows throughout the year. Each lasts about 1/2 hour. There is a place to get a coffee and buy chocolate and crisps but no restaurant during the holidays so take a picnic. 95% of... More

We spent a good few hours here. Very educational but interesting too. We saw the yucky you show which was brilliantly executed and ensured the kids were entertained. They were encouraged to interact and take part in the show. All the staff were brilliant, explaining how different exhibition items worked. All exhibition items are interactive, making the learning fun. I... More

We took our 3 children and my partners daughter for a day out, we were instantly greeted by very friendly helpful staff. We all enjoyed everything that was on offer. Will definitely be visiting there again and are contemplating booking our Daughter's birthday party there. Excellent value for money and service Xxx

What a lovely little place. Took a 3 year old who tried everything and really enjoyed it. My 1 year old even had a go at a few things. Very safe environment to be in. Each room has lots of things to do, there is nothing you can't touch and try out. The true meaning of an interactive display. Kept... More

Took our grandchildren, ages 5 and 2 years. The staff were helpful and friendly. We thought we would stay around an hour, we were there for 4 hours and could have stayed longer. Very interesting and both children were kept busy the whole time, education with lots of fun for all of us. Well worth the entrance cost.
