We love a visit to Techniquest as its great fun for all the family. We love the hands on activities and are always surprised to find new and exciting additions each time we visit. Went at the end of the Easter holidays and was pleasantly surprised to find it busy but not hectic. The place has had a refit since... More

We planned only to stay a couple of hours, we ending up staying until closing time. There are so many hands on things for children and adults to have fun with. There are also shows to see (you may need to pay extra for these) depending on the time of year/theme etc.

The kids really loved this place, there are some great experiments to try and its a huge bonus that its all hands on, but I just couldn't help but think that at £25 for a family of 4 it's a lot of money for what it was. We got there at 12.00 and there was no availability on the star... More

Over the Easter holidays when the weather was not so good visited the science Techniquest with a 2&3 yr old. Absolutely lovely day, and four hours passed so quickly. A special thank you for James in the observatory for his oration of granddads garden shed in space. The kids and I loved it. The whole exhibition is of value to... More

This Good Friday we took our two grandsons back to Techniquest. They always regard it as one of the highlights of a visit to the grandparents. Although it was busy being a bank holiday, the children thoroughly enjoyed it once again. There have been some changes since last time we were there, but it is mainly the same but they... More

Bright and spacious with recently updated coffee bar and shopping, this is a great way to play with science. Also located in beautiful Cardiff Bay, it's easy to combine a visit with boat trips or "thrill" boat rides, great eating out, Dr Who and lots of other activities

We have visited a couple of times & my children love this place! I don't enjoy it quite as much as they do though! I think they see it as a big play area!! They are already asking to go again - so I shouldn't complain! Don't miss the shows - this is what makes techniquest special in my eyes.... More

We literally spent the whole day here, although went out for lunch, and our 6 year old son loved it. Loars of things to entertain him and to be fair us as well. We used a voucher out of the city tours leaflet and got a BOGOF so made it really good value for money. The staff there were great... More

Visited here in the Easter half term with my Son who is 7, it was fairly busy but we got served by a very helpful member of staff straight away. I thought it was of a reasonable price. We got wristbands that meant we could leave and come back on the same day up until closing time which I thought... More

Visited here with my 4 and 6 year old boys. They enjoyed the hands on displays especially the water one. Always a good place to come to and especially nice because it is in cardiff bay so you can have a full day out.
