Good for children. My son loved the museum. It had a lot of interesting things yo do and there were many different activities. My only complain was the people and how rude they can be. For example kids not waiting their turns and parents not stopping them from skipping lines. Otherwise a fun museum to take little ones. We broke up our visit to one hour I the morning and then went out to have lunch and returned in the afternoon for three more hours. The cafeteria food did not look appetizing. Just a short walk to better restaurants. But museum is a nice way fir kids to have fun in the city.

My nephew enjoyed a good week there. Science world is not only a good place for kids, it's also a good place to adult who still feel interested for everything. The only thing I can complain is the entree fee, it's too expansive to the family which is low income.

What we really enjoyed about this science centre was the large number of hands on exhibits. There is something for all ages here. Very informative and creative ways of explaining science concepts.

There is so much interactive and hands on stuff here, it's brilliant for kids of all ages.

Yes there are kids running around and some of them are a complete pain. It's a small price to pay though for an educational and fun day out.

We went as a family of four with two teenagers before we went and were concerned that it was aimed more at families with young children than older children. But it was absolutely brilliant, it was all hands-on and there were a variety of different activities, for young children, older children and even adults. A really good learning experience, and great fun at the same time. We went mid-afternoon and found that this was probably the best time to go as it wasn't busy at all and we didn't have to queue to get in. The only downside to Science World was that the first room that you walk into is quite messy and disorganised, and a lot of the machines and activities in this room didn't work as they were under maintenance.
