Visited with 2 children (pre-school & KS2 age) in the school holidays and they loved it – especially all the interactive areas inside and outside. We arrived by train from Stratford Parkway shortly after opening time, so benefited from the “buy 1 get 1 free”...More

I visited Think Tank today. The first thing that disappointed me was the cost of entry, £13.50 then an extra £1.50 if you wish to visit the planetarium. They make a point of mentioning that there are no concessions for over 60’s The next thing...More

Lots of different displays and exhibits to keep all ages entertained. The shows in the theatre and planetarium are both worth a visit.

For the price we had to pay £13.50 per adult / £10 per child I would have expected that all exhibition / interactions were in good working order, but they were not. Many interactions were broken down, a huge disappointment for the children as there...More
