We visited in July with our 2 eldest granddaughters, aged 4 and 5. They thoroughly enjoyed playing with all the technical 'toys' and had a great day learning new things. The venue is part of the college and is staffed by knowledgeable young people who are ready to pass their knowledge onto visitors. We spent about 3 hours there on... More

My eldest son chose to go here today after looking at several leaflets at the hotel. It was a great decision. There were lots to explore including shows and a mirror maze. It is a very hands on place and gets you thinking and problem solving. The staff were very friendly and keen to help you solve any problems you... More

This place was really good for birthday parties. I've been to a few here now and the children love it. Only wish they would cater, but they allow you to cater yourself or bring a caterer in which is fine. Can't fault the entertainment and the smiles on the children's faces.

Both kids loved it, with the younger one enjoying the activities for fun while the older one started thinking about the science of them. Lots of fun for us, too!

Visited here with our 4 year old Grandson. He thoroughly enjoyed it and would have spent more time with his favourite exhibits if we had the time. It is very hands on and ideal for younger children. For them it is play - but they learn as well. We also had a fun show well presented with static electricity and... More

The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful & the children were well occupied and cared for (you have an escort / party planner who stays with you throughout for a booked party). The children enjoyed both the interactive displays and the demondtraion /... More

Took our 3yr old and her 1 yr old brother to Techniquest. We had a great afternoon, they both thoroughly enjoyed playing and learning about the mirror maze, making films, shadow pictures, air currents and making masks. Staff were excellent and engaged brilliantly with our children.
