Took my nephew for a day out, there is so much to do with a range of activities for all ages. The interactive displays engage the kids and adults alike. Food is extremely reasonably priced and surprisingly delicious and fresh. It's a great day out...More

Being able to engage children and even teenagers with science is a feat that the Science Centre gets right. From testing your strength and even timing your running speed this centre is worth the entry fee. There is plenty of optical illusions to spark curiosity...More

if you haven't been, it is worth the trip at least once. there are some good things to see and do here, and it isn't very expensive. The exhibits are getting tired though and it could benefit from a freshen up.

Fantastic experience for kids of all ages, there are lots of science-based interactive activities that are both fun and educational. I've been with groups of kids on school trips, and the kids have always loved it and rated it as one of their favourite excursions.

This is a great place to bring the kids with lots of interactive exhibits. They change regularly too. It is well laid out and family friendly. Take public transport though as parking would be very difficult. I highly recommend the Science Centre.

This is a great spot for little people to experiment and play whilst learning. It gives them many opportunities to begin to grasp some concepts in physics by experiencing them rather than reading in a book and trying to imagine them - practical and fun.

Whilst adults can get something from the visit, this is an attraction designed to inspire and teach the minds of the young - if you have a child in your life who is the least bit interested in STEM subjects, bring them along today!
