Great children's adventure

The centre is a hive of activities for shield rent of all ages even the adults get involved , have your headlines of the day on the front of the local newspaper, or make a great dragster racing car or a battery operated car
Hungry then there is a nice cafe serving everything from coffee to meals

Not much fun
Jan 2016 • Family
Unfortunately this place is very dated and needs some work to improve things. Lots of things were damaged and didn't always work. Shame when you are paying. My son enjoyed bits of it but it just wasn't worth the visit

Great fun
Great place, children had lots to do. Being able to take home your make it toy too is great, my boys made an aeroplane propeller and a fairground ride, which is included in the price. We also opted for the price that included food which was very nice and the cakes were amazing. There is no car park but there is one across the road at the swimming baths. Very short walk.
This place also does fun things to do in the school holidays like special events or sometimes even open days. Had a lovely time thanks.

Something different for the kids
Feb 2015
Really friendly customer service. We all got to make a model each and make our own newspaper front cover. Enjoyable experience for both adults and children. The kids were probably too young (4 and 6) to get the other exhibits but they certainly loved playing with them. A picnic area is available indoors plus a very reasonably priced NICE cafe.

Nice cafe
Dec 2014 • Family
We stopped off in Mansfield on route from York to London during the week before Xmas hoping to visit the Making it! Discovery Centre. Unfortunately it was closed but the café was open so we had lunch there. The café is very pleasant, with a large selection of food, reasonably priced and friendly and quick service. Parking is available in a cheap pay and display car park across the road.

Fine for a light bite or snack

This cafe is pretty basic but 'does what it says on the tin' and if fine for the place it serves and the clientele who are mostly families there for a shortish period of time. Food is basic, but well prepared and reasonable value for money.

Making it, creating it.
Oct 2014
From my 12 and 9 yo daughters perspectives. Whilst fun and exciting it helps them understand science without realising they are learning. Lots of things to make and do. Fun day out and went with voucher £8.25 for adult and child got in free. Taken by Grand parent so not sure what child price is.

day out with family
Sep 2014 • Family
This is a wonderful day to stretch the imagination of children and adults of all ages. I went with my son. daughter in law and my two grandchildren who were on a visit from Somerset. We all made a working battery model which we took home, and the boys printed their own newspaper page. It was really value for money as a whole day could be spent there, and you could also get a lunch there.
