This is a must if you have kids as they will love all the activities they can experiment with. You can wander around for as long as you want just trying out all the great experiments like blowing up a hot air balloon and firing water from cannon pistols. We have visited many times and every time there is something... More

Was dragged here by my partner, but I did end up enjoying it a little. Not really my cup of tea! but everyone there especially, the kids were having a great time. loads to see and do, and very hands on for the kids. Not your normal stuffy boring science museum.

It was excellent value for a party and we were allocated a member of staff to help in any way it was a huge success and I think all party attendees enjoyed themselves... More

Techniquest is great for kids to learn about science. They can run around from exhibit to exhibit and get hands on to discover and play. It also has a planetarium on site that do shows that cater for younger and older kids. The cafe on site is handy for lunch time and if you go on one of their special... More

We went to an adult evening they put on where you could relive your childhood memories whilst drinking fabulous cocktails! Can't wait to go again.
