I took my 13 and 6 year old and both enjoyed immensely, and to be honest, so did I! A great afternoon out.

This is an excellent place to spend a few hours; it is very large and educational in a fun manner. I would a imagine this would be excellent for children as well as there were many kids around. I would recommend you clearly check if there are any deals on prices according to the time of day as we only... More

Lovely greeting on arrival & I appreciated the way the staff member spoke directly to our four year old. She loved being able to move from one activity to the other there was so much to entertain her. The area is very spacious so plenty of room to spread out. There are lockers available at a small charge to put... More

This place is great! Not too expensive and it had so many exhibits for our daughter to experience and explore she's 19 months and even though she doesn't know any better she still managed to get involved and try out a few bits. So I'd definitely say it's suitable for all ages! Clean cafe and toilet no ha drier in... More

Visited with two children (6 & 8) who loved it! Sooo much to see & do. Big highlight was the Fire & Light Show - great staff! Only niggle would be the quality & variety of food in cafe. Pretty poor, although appreciate the venue may not have the facilities to prepare fresh food. Would highly recommend & would return.... More

A good place to go when the weather is not great out. You do get a wristband so that you can leave and come back as much as you want that day. Lots to look at but extremely busy, lots of school trips were on whilst we were there and we found it very difficult to get near some of... More

We were staying in Cardiff over half term & my 12 year old chose to go here. It was good. I also have an 8 year old & a 5 year old & they all enjoyed it. Lots of activities, could do with a bit more of a structure. We chose to do the under 7's show in the planetarium... More
