I first visited as a child on a school trip, just after it first opened, returned with my daughter in2014 and she loved it, I also learnt a lot about science, all the stuff I'd forgotten about from childhood. would recommend!

We visit Techniquest about twice a year with various people, and thoroughly enjoy it. There is always something new to enjoy, to test one's ability, strength, brain power! Nothing to dislike.

Brilliant - although most of the stuff there is the same from when I was in primary school. Thats over 10 years nearly 15. UPDATES PLEASE!! The world/technology/science has come along way.

Lots to do and some fun shows as well. It is worth checking the schedule to plan your afternoon astound what is happening. The children loved all the exhibitions too. Food is a bit grim and smells of cooking fat. Go to the bay for something to eat :)

Great place to get kids hooked on science! I've been there with my cousins and with my boyfriend in a separate occasion. I had an amazing time both times. The only thing I would ask to improve is maybe a canteen? I don't know if there is one available or it was remodeling, but the kids get hungry really quickly... More

All ages will enjoy this science centre with lots to see and do. There is a car park down the side which is pay and display. For the hours of entertainment I feel it is a cheap day.

The place was quite small, it doesn't take long to see everything.Twice! I won't deny that some of the attractions are cool but still. It's a waste of money and time

We totally loved our time here, I would recommend for children and the young at heart !!! Great team of people working there all extremely friendly and knowledgable. We attended a science show all about light , this inspired our children to go home and recreate the experiments. Thoroughly enjoyable and very educational !!
