Excellent place for kids

Would not hesitate in commending this place. My son thoroughly enjoyed an afternoon here, so much so that he wants to ask his school to arrange a trip here.

We visited on a random Tuesday hoping it would be reasonably quiet so our 2 year old could have a good look around. Unfortunately for us there were at least 4 school groups there and it was chaos. Exhibits were really good, and all but one was working which shows they do really care about the quality of the museum.... More

Took my grandson there to get him off the computer! He loved it. The section on hydraulics and fitting cushion puzzles together held his attention. As always there is something to buy educational toys. regretably we heard it may close, please go there and support them

Overall my 4 year old daughter enjoyed exploring it for the first time but I think it will be a while before... More

Even though techniques seems to be marketed towards children, me and a lot of my friends, family and colleagues love going here. You actually can learn quite a lot but it's very fun

My boys love this place. Their first choice on holiday time. Lot to explore and keep them busy. Can't wait to go back.

I love going to Techniquest even though I don't have children. There are so many hands on experiments and demonstrations that it's always interesting even if you've seen them all before. It can get crowded as it's very popular with schools, but you can't begrudge the children learning stuff like this.

We had a fab time playing with all the puzzles and science games. My 2, 4 and 6 year olds all had a good time and ran around in a blur of excitement. There were tears and grumblings when it was time to leave, always a sign they enjoyed themselves.

My husband & I had a couple of hours to spare before heading home so we decided to visit techniquest to pass a bit of time. We could see there were a lot of families with children, so before we purchased our tickets we asked a member of staff if it was suitable for adults or mainly for children- we... More

Visited here on a Sunday morning at the end of our weekend away in a nearby hotel. Was going to let my son and his Dad go on their own but decided to join them in the end. My son is 15 and thought he'd be too old for it but we all thoroughly enjoyed our time there ....... very... More
