It still excites first time visitors for a short time, but unfortunately it is definitely showing signs of age, wear and tear.

Techniquest is located in Cardiff bay a short distance from the Wales Millennium centre, a great place for children to learn about science and technology.

This used to be a great place but after many years it just looks old, smelly and grubby. Time to pull it down or renew everything.

Not sure if Techniquest offer Gluten free but some of the other cafes on the Bay possibly do. Sorry I cannot be more exact.
