Had a lovely afternoon with my grandchildren ages 13, 10 and 8yrs. They found something fun and interesting to do in every room and really enjoyed it. The staff were pleasant and encouraging and all the items seemed well maintained and of good standard. My eldest grandchild went to a mechanical Lego workshop and put together (under supervision) a Lego... More

When I visited this area I was a bit pushed for time and was so disappointed I have vowed to visit again in the not too distant future. What I did see was fascinating though.

Thanks for taking the trouble to post your review... We hope you'll have more time on your next visit. Our visitors usually report they can easily spend 2 to 3 hours here - a complete morning or afternoon if you include the live science show - with some saying they had fun all day!! More

The only advice I would give, is check which 'show' is on before you go and make sure it sounds like something you/your kids would be interested in. For us, this is a one-off-visit-place. In other words, once you've had your brain tricked and tested by everything in here - there would be no point in going back as you... More

Techniquest kept my kids entertained for approx 1-2 hours, I thought it was a bit pricey considering.... alot of other similar government lead attractions are free such as museums.

Accompanied a group of children celebrating a birthday. So many little faces lit up when we were taken into a room full of puzzles. The walk through a hall of mirrors was a delight. Then we had a demonstration of water activities using the birthday boy and a couple of his friends as "volunteers." More activities followed, all of which... More

Some very interesting experiments for the kids to try. The best being making the brass bowl sing and the water dance. Our 7 year old loved most things, creating a very short moving picture show, working out how to unlock a gate, moving blocks from one place to another in the least number of moves etc. we had expected to...

Took my 2 boys age 8 & 4 and they had a great day, highlight was the hall of mirrors, there is also lots of activities fro all ages, a gift shop which is reasonably priced and they put on mini shows with audience participation.
