“Great experience for kids”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

Took the kids here at the weekend. This is there 3rd visit in 2 years and they loved it. There are some great interactive items that the kids can play with learn at the same time.
Keep an eye out for special attractions that be on there. There are often special themes at weekends etc.

“Star Wars at the W5”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

We took 3 children ages 2 to 6 there on a Saturday and had to queue for a long time to get in which was very frustrating for all. Once inside the activities for the children were very good and well organised and the added attraction of lots of Star War characters walking about was excelled.

“Interactive & very well done”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

The kid's really enjoyed this museum. It is well thought out, and educational without seeming like it. It is probably the best children's museum I've been in, nice and new, with all the equipment still working and lots of different activities to try. My kid's are 8 & 10, and they were well entertained. We especially liked making the stop motion films together.

“Great fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

Visted for second time, kids 9-13, and about 4 years since last visit, nice and quiet on fri afternoon. Loved the musical stairs! And was delighted virtual arp was still there. Really enjoyed that they had kept some of older exhibits and added new ones. Parking so convenient and great to be able to leave and have lunch and re enter. Lockers at entrance very handy, totally child friendly
