Although Techniquest is somewhere children (and adults) can learn - it is also a lot of fun. There are some great exhibits, many of which are very "hands on". The staff are very friendly, and patient! If you are visiting the area, it's well worth a visit, but be warned - you can end up spending more time here than... More

I would recommend that you go when it is less likely to be busy, sometimes you can't even move it gets so full. Its a great interactive day out, it can work out expensive for large families. the coffee shop is ok at a push, parking is good due to the car park opposite, plus the location is really good....

I was not impressed with this exhibition. Very expensive for families. Costs a lot for the time you wish to spend there.

This is a building full of hands-on experiments. Most of them work (unusually for this kind of place, I find) - the only issue with a few is that they need a lot of strength or energy to get them to work. There are live "shows" - we went to one about the slimy stuff in and around your body.... More

Great place, cheaper on a Sunday if money's an issue or a lot of you are going. Lots for children to learn and do. Great activity for a rainy day.

A very interactive and interesting morning . This place is good . We took our 6 year old and he thought it was brilliant as everything could be touched,pushed pulled ,popped etc so he was in his element and didn't know what to explore next .

Took our 8 year old as a treat today. Was very busy which is nice to see but disappointed to see that things were not working as good as they should! The dragon had been overhauled since our last visit but on the one foot was working. All in all a good hour or 2 out but thought a bit... More

Both of my kids loved this place. It's not very big place but big enough to last whole day for them. The cafe shop shuts at 3o'clock and the grandparents got a bit bored after the coffee shop was closed. After all, it is a good place for children, teens and young adults.

The exhibits are fun and educational. Kids could spend an hour or all day there. They have shows that are well suited to younger kids.
