Second visit with the grandchildren and two of their friends. Lengthy queues but through in a few minutes. 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

Visited here recently with my three-year-old nephew and there was lots to keep him busy and interested for hours, and not just in the separate small kids section. It seems expensive to get in but if you bring a picnic and spend most of the day there, it's not so bad. A great learning space for adults too!

Went here with our daughter, her husband and their two children (7 and 11 years). The children enjoyed themselves because it has lots a hands-on things to do which all teach you something.
