Having not visited Techniquest for some years we decided to take the family down to give our daughter her first taste and share the memories. Walking in, the entrance is very eye catching, although I have no idea how the staff put up with the graphic screen behind the desk? It's certainly got the wow factor for the first couple... More

We have been in Techno-exhibitions in Germany (Flensburg) and in the Netherlands (Amsterdam) but in Techniquest the activities were more special. It's very good that the link is made with the effects on our enviroment. We realy enjoyed our visit. There's a lot to do at Cardiff Bay.

Great place to relax whilst kids have fun and experiment. They were genuinely excited about the whole experience and it was a great afternoon spent. Free Wifi made it possible to read the newspaper whilst the kids played. The staff were helpful and interacted knowledgeably with the visitors old and new a like.

We took our 2 nieces here summer 2014 Now there are some great little exhibits here for all ages. But after about an hour we found you have seen everything, and due to the size of the place it can take an age before an exhibit becomes free for the kids to tey and you seem to be forever wairing...

There is something there for everyone. the children learn whilst having fun learning especially about science. Well worth a visit. It is situated in Cardiff Bay if you have the time... More

If you go to Cardiff Bay as a family pop into Techniquest for a fun and informative science view on life. You'll get wet, learn to play musical notes and be amazed at all the experiments and hands on brain provoking challenges aimed at the childen and adults!) Parking is expensive in the area, so park by the Norwegian Church... More

Fab if you have kids especially if it's raining. I always had a yearly pass when mine were younger as it is such a fab place to keep them occupied when it is raining and we get plenty of those days. It also expands their minds and teaches them to think. Great place to visit
