if you haven't been, it is worth the trip at least once. there are some good things to see and do here, and it isn't very expensive. The exhibits are getting tired though and it could benefit from a freshen up.

Fantastic experience for kids of all ages, there are lots of science-based interactive activities that are both fun and educational. I've been with groups of kids on school trips, and the kids have always loved it and rated it as one of their favourite excursions.

This is a great place to bring the kids with lots of interactive exhibits. They change regularly too. It is well laid out and family friendly. Take public transport though as parking would be very difficult. I highly recommend the Science Centre.

This is a great spot for little people to experiment and play whilst learning. It gives them many opportunities to begin to grasp some concepts in physics by experiencing them rather than reading in a book and trying to imagine them - practical and fun.

While exploring Southbank & all it has to offer, take the time to visit the Science Centre. It's so much fun for kids & adults alike. Do it at your own pace & watch the kids do the hands on activities while playing & learning....More

Whilst adults can get something from the visit, this is an attraction designed to inspire and teach the minds of the young - if you have a child in your life who is the least bit interested in STEM subjects, bring them along today!

The temporary exhibitions are great - the permanent ones are getting a bit tired and in need of a little refresh. But still fun and educational.

Hi, we recommend 2-3 hours to explore the Museum. If you're planning to take in our latest exhibition you may even like to stay a little longer. Once you're ready to explore something new there are many options near by... More
