Really interactive kids programs. They are always changing the displays and the kids are always welcome to touch and learn about things.

I have never had so much fun in my life! It doesn't matter if you are there with your children or if you never lost your child inside everyone can have fun at Sciencentre. You aren't only learning something about science you can also learn something about yourself...that you're never to old to have fun like a child! :) :D

Probably the last time we will visit as my kids are teens now and a lot of the activities are for smaller kids but we enjoyed a bit of family hands on fun while we were there.

We took the kids 10 and 12 along in hopes that they weren't getting too old but was well worth the entry fee. It was great to experience the Rescue exhibit letting us know more about what our emergency service workers do for us. Highly recommended for any young, open mind (no matter how old the person is!)

The family can spend hours here experimenting and exploring. Great for rainy days or very hot ones too! Probably more suited for 5 + years and exhibits change all the time so there is always something new to see and do!

I went on my own but even 26 year old me turned into a giant 8 year old. Such fun and a great learning experience for the youngsters.

I went there recently with my 6 year old granddaughter - she had a ball especially with all the interesting exhibits - especially the Dinosaurs , and the glass which either makes you bigger or smaller. Staff very helpful and friendly
