We went as a school trip. The activities were fun and engaging and the staff were very helpful. There were displays and activities for all age groups, covering a wide range of science; it was not just about oil drilling as some of the more negative reviews suggest.

Sorry, don't waste your time. Dated, musty smelling boring. Great shame as the venue is good. Unfortunately broken exhibits, lack of explanations regarding what is on show and a bunch of screaming school children. Honestly a waste of time. Sadly can't recommend it.

I visited this place with three nieces under 12 years old. Unfortunately, we didn’t have enough time to enjoy all activities and experiences. We really had to be selective in choosing the activities. Great fun, not only for the kids, but also for me. Unique exhibits with helpful volunteer staff.

A high-tech science discovery centre that focuses on the oil and gas industry. Kids will learn a lot. A lot of hands on activities.
