Took the grandkids over Easter break, brilliant, so much to do and enjoy. Ensure you have the whole day as we were there for 5 hours and could have stayed longer. If you have time take in a movie at the Imax. Would recommend to all families.

Fab day out for all ages. Your kids eyes light up the moment you enter. Massive human body exhibit on. Try and get a voucher to reduce the entry price. It's well worth taking drinks or a packed lunch, picnic tables avaliable.

Staff member at ticket desk very helpful explaining that as we travelled by train we could get a couple of the children in for free. Some of the hands on equipment were out of order but there were plenty to keep everyone... More

The kids thought it was a great centre, and it was very cheap . They learned a lot and the exhibitions and centre really held their... More
