The staff here work hard to make the exhibits interesting for children of all ages. Activities, like robot building, are held at various times and are well attended.

From outside it doesn't look much. But once inside there's actually quite a lot to see and do. Passes an hour for adults but as it's more aimed for kids can easily pass a few hours with them! Worth a visit though.

Science based hands on experience for children, part of Glyndwr University, I think the idea is quite widely used and may well be a franchise operation.

A spacious well laid out play environment. Clean, safe and well maintained. A variety of activities to keep all ages and adults occupied. A good indoor space to eat your own picnic plus a half-hour science show, the perfect venue for a wet day with the grandkids.

This is was a great museum as it was totally hands on and not one of those museums that you have to look round without touching the features. I would recommend it for families with children of ages between 2 and 8 but I think teenagers and young adults would enjoy it as well.
