Brilliant learning experience for kids and equally entertaining for adults. You will need at least 5 hours to do justice...

Safe parking available

Great, hours of fun and very educational. We really enjoyed the Robotic dinosaurs and a the science and technology on show. Only sad thing was that one or two of the exhibitions are closed due to COVID19.

WOW! This was infotainment at its best! We got to actually do chemistry experiments. Kids really enjoyed all the learning activities! A MUST for school groups, as well as individuals wanting to get their kids off the internet!

I was duly impressed with all the exhibits on display and especially how interactive it was. An ideal place to take students/children to learn with a hands in approach.

We held a birthday party for my grandson at Sci- Bono. Rented a special room for birthday party. Received excellent support from staff. Lots and lots of things to stimulate the minds of young children. The science experiments for kids are very good and the kids enjoyed it a lot.
Reasonable priced and safe parking. Highly recommended!

It’s often hard to find a museum that accommodates all ages. My eleven and fourteen year olds thoroughly enjoyed themselves here. There was loads of hands on activities for them to partake in and the staff were super interactive and friendly. I highly recommend a visit if your children love science!

On arrival we were welcomed by enthusiasm and energy by the welcoming team. The centre has mainly interactive displays and enough friendly, hands-on staff to assist and support learning. We planned on spending 3 hours at the centre, but ended up spending 5, and racing through the final few displays. The areas are clean a d well organised. Our children loved it.

Absolutely fantastic day our for children and I had a great time also... you need to be there for the day. There’s a nice little coffee shop. The climbing wall is great, the exhibits are terrific and the mini planetarium are all a must do. Take sneakers for the climbing wall. The whole place is amazingly interactive and children can climb, build, play and have super fun.... take your kids, it’s superb and CHEAP.
