So does our 3 year old Grandson. Loves the bricks, the topsy turvy room and the steam! So much to do here and such good value. Coffee could be nicer in the cafe.....

Not sure if my little one was just too young. He was 15 months old and there just wasn’t much for children of that age. We were there for about 30 mins which makes it quite expensive. Will defo return when he’s a bit older....More

Pretty boring for an adult, around 30% of activities either not switched on or broken, the planetarium show was unexciting and a bit patronising and it was too dark to see properly with the 3d glasses on. Nothing terrible here just needs more maintenance and...More

Took my three granddaughters here in the holidays. Expected to stay for an hour or so but five hours later we were still there ! It has so much to do and see and plenty of interaction for all,ages. Definitely worth going to

For 35 pound for a family of 3 you’d expect at the very least a fresh supply of paper and material at peak hours for the experiments in which you are invited to make a flying craft. Instead you find yourself scrummaging around on the...More

Great way to spend a fun few hours. We were lucky enough to have vouchers, which made a huge difference to the price.

Not sure what you’d call this - a science museum I suppose, or an educational visitor attraction- but it’s good. Lots of hands on things to do. Good cafe. The Planetarium is out of this world. Get tickets in advance. Quite expensive though.

Definitely go to one of the stargazing shows and the planetarium. Really fascinating facts throughout the building and lots of cool stuff to do, would say it’s fun for any age!
