  • Interesting place where visitors get to be very interactive. There are lot of things to try, and it is suitable for both large and small. Of us was my second cousins, the youngest at 1.5 years and she seemed to like to be part of some of the things:) There were two special exhibitions where you needed a card from the reception area to get into. But it was just to download.

  • Funny museum you can kill a few hours on. Much is added up for children, but we (22-25 years) had it very funny.

  • It's a good place for children to play and get benefit of all the things exhibited there.
  • Nice place for childrens and families
  • Fun museum, but should try to to be more interactive and add new activities.
  • One of the best science museums I have visited. Huge selection of topics and great interactive displays. Kids can do so much here from knitting a giant sock to playing with a crane.
  • Fun and learning for kids of all ages with plenty of interactive installations, planetarium and some fun theme shows. Well stocked museum shop with lots of gadgets and experiments for the kids.
