“Smart fun for the kids”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2013 via mobile

If the weather isn't too great, then bring the kids here. It's full of interactive science displays and the staff are well trained in giving demonstrations and explanations. They also do school groups.

“It's interesting”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 May 2013 via mobile

The science center is not in the cleanest of neighborhoods. Kind of sketchy and we thought we were lost for a moment. Parking in front and walking in it was quite quiet. Nothing fancy. But stairs leading up to the pay booth and through the long hallway we arrived at gadgets and such. Much better. There were interesting things to keep my kids occupied for hours. Building was the most fun for my kids. And they love it. Ask for the next time to return. And my kids are under 11 yrs. good for a rainy day or nothing to do.

“this is for todds”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 April 2013

My eleven year old found the CTSC boring. There was very little to see or do. One or two interesting gadgets but way too few for when there are groups of families.

“Good place to visit on a rainy day.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 February 2013

We were told this place was in Century City but on arrival we found to an other area close to Groote Schuur Hospital. The "CTSC" had loads of parking space so that was good. It was in a bit strange area for a Science Centre to be in but that did not matter so much actually. We had a lot of fun in there. Many interactive puzzles , experiments , LEGO block area etc to do there.
Staff was around to explain all activities too. My kids (3yrs and 6 yrs old) did not wanna leave !
Nice place to go on a rainy day.
