“Science fun”
Reviewed January 13, 2014 via mobile

This is was a great museum as it was totally hands on and not one of those museums that you have to look round without touching the features. I would recommend it for families with children of ages between 2 and 8 but I think teenagers and young adults would enjoy it as well.

“Great day for the kids, super staff”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

My 2 girls (8 & 9) really enjoyed their visit, lots to do, everything interactive and educational, plenty of staff on hand to help and show them how things work, and they were great with the kids really looked like they enjoyed their work which is good to see, only drinks and snacks on sale so take a packed lunch, clean eating area with plenty of tables and chairs, recommend.

“Kids had a great time”
Reviewed December 23, 2013 via mobile

Everything is hands on and great for kids and adults to get stuck in with.

The staff are always on hand to help. Especially when you cannot work it out.

We all loved the show.

Big thanks to all the staff for a great day out.

“Good but needs a cafe.”
Reviewed December 21, 2013

We took our 3 grandsons aged 4, 8 and 11 to Techniquest for the day. All three had a good time, the only problem we had was a birthday party. The children from this were running wild and kept pushing the little one off things, they needed more staff to control this or the parents should have been made to keep the children under control.
A cafe would have been nice as you could only buy a few things like drinks and sweets in the shop.
