My kids love this place! Always something interesting to see and lots of interactive activities. School holidays have the best exhibits but also attract the crowds. Also a short stroll to other great attractions like an aquatic centre. Easily makes for a great day out.

We took our 9 and 2 year old kids. We all had a great time. Our family enjoys science. There were interactive exhibits. We spent 3 hours inside and didn't even see everything on floors 1 and 2. We had a great time!
