Techniquest is a really interesting place with 2 floors of hands-on activities. A great learning experience for children of all ages. Excellent layout and great variety. You could spend a day here.

I have always loved techniquest since I was a child. I have a 3 year old son now and I take him for a few hours out on a rainy day. The toddler days are very good value, I think it is still fun for the adults aswel as the children:D

Went with a 13 and 9 year old we all loved it. They give you a wristband so you can come and go on the day.which is a great idea, as it gets noisy with all the kids in there, it gives you a breather. We booked one of the special science shows and my son said , he wished... More

Enjoyed a visit with our Grandchildren, aged 7 & 5; was just as when I went with my children when they were that age! Well, there have been a few changes but nothing substantial considering the technical and scientific changes in the past 30 years.

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
