What a great way to learn!

We're retired and we love learning. This was so much more than expected. Lots of activities to be actively involved in to learn about scientific principles. So much fun!

OK fun for kids. Not especially cheap, but slightly educational. They will laugh and you will feel like a good parent. THat's fair enough isnt it?

Some great interactive science activities for children of all ages. If you live locally buy a year pass to make the most of being able to visit every holiday.
