“great day out for kids of all ages...science really is fun!”
Reviewed November 23, 2012

Informative and educational kept my boisterous boys entertained for 4 hours each time we go. Hands on and inter active its big enough and physically engaging to tire them out .. a little at least.
The staff are friendly and knowledgeable with their demonstrations and the whole exhibition space is refreshed regularly to merit repeated visits.
Only downside is bad food in the whole complex so bring your own marks & spencer!

“Alright!”
Reviewed November 21, 2012

I took my nephew here and he loves it. I on the other hand find it very boring! You can easily stay the day here. I think it needs more and maybe and update.

“Worth it”
Reviewed November 20, 2012 via mobile

Great spot, went during the day so the crowds were not to busy..

Thought prices were a little bit on the expensive side.

Staff were helpful and reliable

“Need more than a day”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

Just so much to do and see, about 90% of the things in there are hands on so you end up messing about with things and thing like build your own electric model car takes a while especially if you have children with you.

Been wanting to go back but not had the time, excellent for adults and children.
