During one rainy day in Cape Town we took our children, aged 8 & 10, here. Having read the reviews we went with an open main, the children had a really good time and spent a good 4 hours there. As others have said the neighbourhood isn't the best but don't be put off. All of the exhibits are in one very large room. There are lots of hands on stuff with very good written descriptions. When we went there was about 4 school parties there so at times I was quite busy but these groups had different scheduled activities so it was never really overcrowded for long. We were also invited to join the school parties for the science show, my kids loved this. There is a section set up like a builders yard, great imaginative play. One huge hit was the Xbox live - my son played with a member of staff there for a good half an hour. There is a small area set aside for a cafe which sold drinks and small snacks/cakes/sandwiches. Overall this turned out to be one of the highlights for the children during our holiday in Cape Town.
