  • I've taken my now three year old here a few times and he loves it each time - dinosaurs, animals, planets, all awesome. They also have a great range of events and special displays throughout the year  more »

  • Spent about an hour looking around the museum. Some interesting displays, but there was only a few exhibitions to see. Didn't need too long here.  more »

  • As a tourist , I found this museum an amazing experience . Thoroughly enjoyed myself and didn't realise how two hours went by. I am in the city for another fortnight and planning to go once again. Many areas were still not enjoyed completely. Kudos to the staff and the city administrators who have kept this place so neat . Very educational .
  • Great day out for the family. The museum is free with lots of attractions that will cater for everyones interests. The science center is definitely worth the admission. The kids are learning while interacting with exhibits. There is also some fun things for the parents to do also
  • Amazing place. The free entrance is great AND it is highly worth paying the entrance to go to the science centre if you have the time (you need at least 3 hours to go through all activities). My 4 year-old daughter could have stayed there forever testing and restesting each single activity. Very nice personnel especially one young lady at the ticket office who have demonstrated us plenty of compassion and empathy. many thanks!
  • Its great for a quick trip for a few hrs. Though its big n can last a whole day it does get boring quicker for younger kids. Not great for wheel chairs or prams, especially rest rooms. Just not enough space. No place to part especially for it.
  • Interesting and educative museum for both families and individuals. And most of the exibitions can be visited for free! But it is worth buying a ticket for the science centre. The staff is friendly and helpful.
