Amazing day out at Techniquest! My daughter has recently visited te London Science museum with another adult and decided it was boring (you could only watch the science and not do it!) She adored techniquest where she could get up and personal with the science and despite being 5, she did bring home a lot of science knowledge. I'd also... More

What a terrific place to take the children! Plenty of activities and they loved the water area. Very helpful staff and everywhere was clean and safe. Tip take a change of top, it's more fun when you get wet.

The kids love Techniquest. From the oldest, geekiest one who's twelve, down to the creative one who's 7. Brilliant value, particularly if you use Tesco vouchers. I got £30 pounds worth for £7.50, plus paid £3 cash on the door for a family of 5.

Took my twin grandsons aged 3 over from USA where they are members of the NC Children's Museums. They enjoyed their time running round from exhibit to exhibit but most were a little too 'big' for them to fully participate- another year or two and they'd be all over it! Also paid extra for the planetarium show which was especially... More

6weeks holiday this year didn't plan on going aboard so come up with simple idea to just take the boys age 7 and 8 down to Cardiff so choose to go down there and the place took me by the surprise. I'm a bit concern that it might not be my young one type of thing but opposite,he's really enjoyed... More

What a place! And it'll get better as my daughter gets older. Educational and fun. A perfect way to spend a few hours if you've got kids! Loved it!

We came here with the little one and think we enjoyed it more than her, ha. Plenty of things to play around with and learn for all ages, staff are great as they walk around educating people on why things work the way they do (science related experiments) They also have extra shows which you pay for, they also offer...

We went very late in the afternoon and it was pretty empty. I heard people saying they had queued in the morning. We did everything in less than 2 hours and could have stayed longer. Everything is suitable for kids aged 3-9 I recon. Very hands on and enjoyable for the adults as well as the children. Definitely recommend it.

I went to Techniquest with my grandchildren,who really enjoyed themselves,which went on to last a couple of hours,before they (or me),were whacked out.Completely indoors, it's cheap entertainment,and great fun.It had something of interest for all ages.Sited close to the water in the Bay,it's very easy to get to.No doubt,they will want to go again. No food available,but that can be... More

We went on a special toddler day which they do once a month in term time. I've been before and enjoyed but this time a lot of the items didn't seem to be working. That said the two 1yr olds we took had an amazing time and we're throughly exhausted. Go early as the q to get in was huge.... More
