Took our grand daughter to visit here for the first day to take her out on a horrid day. She thoroughly enjoyed her time here, zipping from one think to another. Thoroughly enjoyed the automaton exhibition and the Chitty chitty bang bang car. So much to see and do she didn't know where to go next. Will definitely have to... More

Took our little granddaughter who is only 2. She loved it couldn't drag her away. Very well organised, reasonable price for entrance. Lovely that we could take our own food so we had an indoor picnic together with birthday cake and candles. A lovely day out for all ages.

We were pleasantly surprised when we visited - we were worried that the kids (6 and 9) might get bored but they loved it and we are returning soon. It's very interactive and covers a broad range of topics. Fun for the whole family. Not a massive choice of food in the cafe but its reasonably priced and you can... More

Got discounted family tickets for this so thought we'd give it a go. Was disappointed to see so many of the exhibits just not working and of poor quality. Thankfully the girls made the best of it. Would not recommend to people with kids under 6.

Visited this attraction as part of a Groupon voucher but not sure whether I would have paid the full price of £40 for a family. There was a big issue with Groupon vouchers that day but the Manageress was very accommodating and helpful. The museum is set over four floors with lots of interesting and interactive exhibits. Our children (13... More

I went to the Thinktank on a University trip; so therefore didn't have to pay. I had an enjoyable experience - lots of things to look at, and quite interactive.

Being used to free museums in London, I was a bit taken aback by the price - however that was the only fault I had with Thinktank. A very friendly older gentleman welcomed me and gave me a quick rundown of what was in the museum, including his own personal recommendations. I also took in the Planetarium, which I would... More
