Visited today with hubby. No kids. Planetarium was good but glad the lights were low because I probably wouldn't have sat on the chairs going off what the rest of the place is like.

We arrived at Thinktank after hearing good reviews from others over the years. It was the answer to a miserable rainy day.

Although some stuff didn’t work( me knit picking) it was very entertaining and the kids loved it.This place has great potential if everything worked, staff very helpful and smiling which you don’t see in many places
The Thinktank is an excellent day out. Hands on activities for adults and children. Certificates given to children for taking part, supervising adults giving informative information and explaining activities well, encouraging all to take part. Café facilities very reasonably priced, also there is a picnic...More
Had such a fun evening. It was 6-9pm. Went with a baby, 5yr old and 9yr old. My 2 eldest were so excited that they were visiting at night time. Wasn't very, which was good. You could go round the museum if you wanted. They...More

We took our nearly 3 year old and personally I felt we missed out on a lot of the museum. We went at a busy time so weren't really able to get on anything in the area for younger children. There was enough to look at to fill a couple of hours but I think they'd get more out of it if you waited a couple of years. There are probably cheaper ways to keep them entertained, but if you're not worried about cost give it a go.

It really depends on their interest level. There is a floor of industrial engineering which you could skim or skip. I don't think this is long enough but that shouldn't put you off going, you could always go back if they... More
It really depends on their interest level. There is a floor of industrial engineering which you could skim or skip. I don't think this is long enough but that shouldn't put you off going, you could always go back if they find an interest.
