Come to the city where birds swim under water. And you take a step and advance 10,000 years. It’s a city where you never grow and you always learn. And you can cross the Atlantic surrounded by sharks. In my city you can almost reach out and touch the stars. And you can go a walk under the sea. And find yourself in a wood. And dance with dolphins. Yes, this city exists.

It is hard to plump for a word to sum up this attraction. It might be a great location in Autumn or Spring but in August 39degree heat the concrete was not appreciated by this visitor. And were trees and greenery specifically excluded from the architects remit. Everything is concrete and glass . I may return in a cooler month... More

This place is worth going to just to look at the architecture, have coffee and sit in the plaza and mooch around the gardens that were once a river. The science museum is not the best but the aquarium is amazing.

This area is worth a visit especially if you have some background information. The buildings are amazing and the concept of having these buildings grouped together is a real benefit to the city.

This place truly looks amazing. The outside promises a unique, technologically-advanced experience. But the so-called "science museum" inside, which I was so excited about, was just awful. The exhibits were old and at least 1/4 of them were completely broken. Nothing was cool or fun; I didn't learn anything. Literally every other science museum I've been to before (at least... More

We went here on our way home from the aquarium next door, or part of this really. We never visited the museum we stayed in the park area and rented a 4 seater bike that was great fun for us all, the were activities going on in the lakes which were nice to watch.

The architecture here is pretty impressive, but certainly not worth paying to get into the museum. The museum is bland, certainly not engaging, with loads of boards of text, over 3 floors...There were some 'interactive' exhibits, but we were really disappointed with the number that were broken, needed reinitialising or just a screen showing an old newspaper. We mentioned this... More
