  • Couple of interesting bits but as a whole just not for us. A few of the exhibits weren't working and others were just random.  more »
  • Plenty to see and stretch the mind. Good cafe bar with boffins aplenty. Nice quiet space to meet, ponder and plan.  more »

  • Really good exhibitions. Spent a week here for a mentoring project had such a good time. Staff and mediators are amazing definitely have a look around after all its FREE.
  • A great little gallery! When I went they had the exhibition on the topic around seeing. The staff are friendly and the exhibitions itself was interactive and really well thought out. I enjoyed seeing how they explain the concept in plain English.
  • Always interesting, thought provoking and usually interactive exhibits in the gallery. There is a quirky shop here too selling science tchatche, wondrous books and souvenirs of the exhibits. Combine that with great coffee, wonderful (and generous) pastries and a restaurant with delicious food; always a winner.
  • Great little gallery that always has interesting science related exhibitions, mostly free or about €10 depending on the exhibition so check out the website to see what's on. The space itself isn't big so it's a good size to spend 30-60min while you're in the area.
  • You can always lear something new here, great curation of interesting expositions!Try the coffee as well, very good!
