Visited twice over the half term and the children really enjoyed. They can't wait to visit again. The shows were good and age appropriate. The annual membership for a family of four is excellent value at £50. The website calendar has allowed us to look ahead and decide when we will visit next. An excellent attraction for inquisitive children.

We visited on half term and although got there just after opening time there was a long queue. Staff did let me and my son in, but said my husband had to wait in the queue to pay even though we had a complimentary pass that had been bought previously. If we hadn't had the pass we would have walked... More

We went for a visit as in Cardiff for the day. We have been to other places aimed for kids like Eureka and the Manchester Science Museum, so had high hopes. It was busy as it was half term but I can honestly say our 2 boys, (aged 11 and 8) had seen enough after an hour whereas in the... More

Took the unfortunate mistake of travelling with my family to Techniquest on a wet half-term day. I couldn't believe the queue and was told that it would take about 30 minutes for the person paying in the family to get through. It actually took my husband 45 minutes to queue. The staff did let myself and my children through -... More

We have annual membership and usually enjoy coming to techniquest as a reliable indoor venue. Usually bring own sandwiches as the cafe used to be horrid, but at least you know what you are dealing with. However, we queued for an hour in the rain this morning, no apologies for the wait which was clearly because there were only 3... More

If you've never been, then go - particularly if you have restless children and need somewhere to go on a wet half-term weekday. There is a cafe and a refurbished bookshop. Experiments galore and something for everyone - including somewhere where mischievous children (of all ages) can get very wet - be warned!

This was a great place to bring the kids and they thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Everything is hands on and child friendly. It was busy but didn't feel so. We were here for an entire morning.

Just spent a lovely day at Cardiff Bay had a voucher for free entry to Techniquest which was a great start! We arrived around 10.30am and left about 4pm. Quite a long queue when we got there but staff let one adult queue and the rest can go in and start the fun. Loads to do and we booked for... More
