Kept my 1.5 year old and 6 year old daughters engaged for hours. Definitely engages most of the senses for the kids. Kudos to everyone involved in assembling a creative and engaging collection of simple and fun gadgets. Would recommend school groups to visit and make it an educational( science ) trip. The body works exhibit was quite interesting as... More

A fabulous day out that kept a 2 1/2 and 7 year old engaged for several hours. Landed on a special offer day that meant we only paid half price £5 for 4 to see the planetarium show, enjoyed it but only worth what we paid. Staff throughout were first class and happy to help. The ongoing events in the... More

Went to the Science Centre to have a look around and see if it would be suitable to take a large group to in the coming weeks, the staff could not have been more helpful and they gave us a lot of useful information to see if we thought there would be enough things for the group to do. Once... More

A few interesting things to be seen but overall not impressed. There were hundreds of children running about without adult supervision. We were... More

The floors are well laid out and spacious allowing everybody to move about with ease, especially buggies and wheelchairs. We love taking friends with us. The work shops are funny, exciting, educational and so much fun. The staff are skilled at sharing information in a... More
