“A marvellous family visit”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

If you haven't been before and you have a child who is curious then this is a great place for you. The exhibits do change regularly.

I think the time when it becomes a little less engaging for children as a fun activity is probably at about ag 12-13 years old. But then that is possibly because of a lot of the exhibits are school curriculum subjects.

It is really well run, with staff about that can help. The cafe is good for food and snacks. And don't forget to ask about having your company corporate function - we had a brilliant night!

“Informative, Entertaining, Brilliant”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

i thought we could be in and out in an hour. Went in at 10 and had to drag the kids out at 3.30 to avoid the rush-hour. Recommended

“interactive science attraction for big and little kids”
Reviewed April 19, 2013

Science based attraction with lots of hands on experiments and challenges. Giant Soap bubbles seem the most popular. Also great animation stations to make your own animated movies.
Great day out for kids 4+
Cafe a bit small but benches for your own picnic provided. Also could go outside attraction and come back in.

“A fantastic experience for all the family.”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

@Bristol is aimed at kids and our 10-year-old daughter has been nagging us to visit again since our first visit in 2011. We were able to let her go off on her own and do so many activities by herself while we aldso tried many of the activities and had the occasional cup of tea. She had a great time, getting there just after opening and staying until after 5pm. We were not bored either and saw many other adults enjoying themselves too. All the staff were enthusiastic, friendly and helpful.

If your child has the slightest interest in science this is for you!
