We enjoyed our visit, lots of things for our son who is nearly 5 to do. It was nice and warm inside considering how cold it was outside. We enjoyed the school work sheet. We were disappointed that a lot of the things were not...More

Our boys loved this, they spent hours excitedly running round, trying all the activities. They were not impressed when we said we had to go. Will definitely go back and highly recommend to anyone with children, particular boys who love STEM.

I took my 10-year-old granddaughter to Enginuity, using our amazing-value annual Passports, and, as it was a week before half-term holidays, we had the place largely to ourselves. Which meant that we got to try out pretty much everything.... We generated electricity from water power...More

Quite disappointing, lots of things not working and without explanatory boards, it did not fulfil their promise. We had expected to spend quite a few hours here but soon got bored. We had bought a museum passport and felt that this is the best value...More
