A Brilliant place for a child’s mind to run wild and learn with the power of Science, Hands on learning is the best method in my personal opinion children need to see the actions and outcomes of both physical and mental activities, Although the price is a bit steep for an adult and the Cafe isn't particularly cheap I would...

Small boy 4years really enjoyed the interactive exhibits. The day we went it was very busy some queues for trying the exhibits so a quieter day would make everything better, try to get out of school holidays. Charge to enter.

The centre is very well equipped and has some great features but i would stress that it is not an all day event. At best you could stay here a couple of hours and some of the exhibits are looking dated. I would have like to have seen more for the money - perhaps some live experiments? using trained staff?...

Loads of good hands-on stuff for kids, of all ages. Interesting and good fun at the same time. A couple of the exhibits had failed but there was still plenty to see and do. Good value.

Visited Techniquest a few days ago with my 3 children. Entry prices are reasonable, and I paid an extra £1.30 per child for them to attend a Lego workshop which they really loved. Parked in the pay and display car park opposite, but unfortunately the price of this bumps up the overall cost of the day out. Children had a... More

We took our grandson to Techniquest in August. The price we paid was approx £22; this was for 2 senior citizens and one child. There were very few restrictions on the children. Everything there was to be tried . The children all seemed to thoroughly enjoy the experience. There were plenty of people around to help and advise. The only... More

My family enjoyed our time here. There are lots of interactive educational games across two floors for the kids to play with (adults were enjoying them as much as the kids!) We were there for around 3 hours. As with most attractions in South Wales, the food and drink weren't too costly, and good value. There are some additional cost... More

We visited here on our last day of holiday en route home. You do have to pay to park in nearby car parks & guesstimate how long you will stay, which is a pain, but the attraction is well worth a visit & I would say to put at least 4 hours on your car park ticket if you want... More

Good for kids loads of interactive fun, gets very busy but seems to cope with large volume of people well. A few broken exhibits but otherwise great fun for a few hours especially if raining
