I went there for a day trip and my family thought it was amazing. My sons the thought that the water experiments were the best part, but I thought that the best part was the probability experiment. A great day out for a family.

We visited Techniquest on a Saturday with two girls aged 5 and 7. The building is light and airy to walk into. We bought a family ticket as well as tickets to visit the various lectures. The children ran about playing with all the different puzzles and exhibits set out for them. There was plenty to do despite the number... More

Loads for the kids to do and play with.BUT on our visit a lot of the hands on items were broken and there was a problem with a major water leak. For what we paid it wasnt worth it.

Arrived early, paid and was then told it was a school day so none of the talks or shows would be running. My daughter, though a little young walked around and tried out the simpler of exhibits. Then 3 school trips arrived! Horrific, noisy and quite intimidating as they ran round with little control from teachers. These must have been... More

We took our nephews here all three at ages 1, 3 and 5 and they spent all day running around this place its just brilliant, take a towel so they can splash around in the wet area and let them run wild! They do everything for kids here and the kids love it!

We visited here while travelling through Europe and UK, mostly for the kids. They were happy to have something else rather than tourist sites to visit!! And the interactive displays were great. I would definitely recommend this to anyone with kids to visit.
