We were there today, with my two lads who are 10 and 11 years old. £21 entrance fee for two kids and two adults seems very good value considering they were occupied for 4+ hours; a current record for our two! Plus, they have a dining area where you can bring your own food, which is not a bad idea... More

Went there with two grandchildren aged 8yrs and 13yrs. It`s really hard to find places for different ages to enjoy. This place is brilliant, even for adults. We spent hours here and half way through went to a show upstairs about flying. Everyone enjoyed it and some of the children took part. There is a little shop there selling drinks,... More

We are sorry about your less than satisfactory visit to Techniquest Glyndwr. Clearly we weren't up to scratch. Normally the ticket/entry process is very quick although sometimes when presented with an unusual offfer/concession by a visitor it can take a while to verify the terms of the deal. We apologise for that if that was the case. As was mentioned... More

We took our boys to techniquest during the school holidays. They absolutely loved it. It is full of interactive activities for children and adults to have a go at. We arrived at 11am and left a 3pm. That time was filled with action and the boys did not want to leave. Staff were fantastic at explaining activities to the children... More

With my wife, we took our grandsons to Techniquest Wrexham, whilst holidaying with them in Chester Only 15 mins down the road and easy to get to. They had a great 3+ hours there including an excellent participative "Super Heroes" show in the afternoon. Their ages are 4 & 6 and were both equally entertained Food is available but limited,...

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.
