“Active activities of the science kind”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

This is an exploratory a bit like a small version of the Science Museum's hands on bit. There are clearly plans for something much bigger but not realised so far. It kept my son occupied for a good 90 minutes and probably would have been longer if he'd watched one of the hourly shows. Lots of little activity stations on things like sound, light, canteliver bridges and the like. Single disabled accessible loo. No cafe, but then right in the middle of Cambridge so no need. Friendly staff.
