Went with my sister (we're both 36) and my 7 year-old nephew. It's quite informative and fun for kids, but the place is tired and needs a revamp. Staff were friendly.

Very interesting place with some inventions on display. Kids can even touch and experiment with some. I have been here a few times, its not very big but you could spend half a day with your little curious ones. Age: perhaps 3 years onwards.

The park is beautiful in spring, when the impressive collection of roses is blooming. It also features some inventions that will satisfy the curiosity of the techies. Besides, it is uphill, so prepare for a little workout.
