Enjoyed our visit lots to do but its was very busy and quite noisy. There were a few extras one was a light show in which they talked about the different types of light very enjoyable and I think the kids enjoyed it.

On a very rainy day in Cardiff with kids of 10 and 12, this was a godsend. Lots and lots of hands on exhibits and experiments for inquiring minds of all ages. Because we had sight seeing bus tickets we got 2 for 1, which effectively meant that the kids were free (we needed the voucher from two sightseeing bus... More

Techniquest was a very very interesting. Riddle to solve and game to play. The experiments to be seen are interesting and always to learn how things are working. There are so many things to see personally I found the artificial vortex the best. If you have the time and are at Cardiff Bay just go and have a look yourself.

I took my 9 and 12 year old boys here for the afternoon. I was concerned that they may be a little old for what was on offer but after an apprehensive couple of minutes they were both hooked. The only downside was lots of ignorant parents who allowed their kids to hog some of the activities and some even... More

Very good for the kids, young and old but chaotic and a free for all at busy times. The cafe is awful. No hot food and it cost me almost £7 for a bottle of water, a packet of crisps and 2 stale sandwiches

Going in the school holidays meant that it was really busy. I think that there may have been too many people for the size of the place. Although saying that we had a lovely time. I have a 3 year old son and a 21 months daughter and they loved running around and doing the experiments. We thought the shows... More

We love this place. My 8 and 13 year old had plenty to try and it really helps with understanding how things work. However, it gets incredibly busy during peek times. My biggest issue is the free for all approach to this place! My children are very polite and step to one side to allow others to try the activities... More

My littlest ones enjoyed playing in these hands-on science exhibits. It is a truly wondrous place for kids of all ages to play!
