    Visited the Science Centre with our two grandchildren aged 6 and 10 Very disappointed with what was on offer. We were in and out in 45 minutes. Some activities were broken and had never been replaced ...  more »

    This is a nice play for younger kids 3-8 years old but a lot of the exhibits are looking a little tired. The staff do their best and the cafe is nice enough just not enough to do for more than 45 minu...  more »

  • Kids loved it (first time we visited). Disappointed to find nothing really had changed in the year that passed between first and second trips. Consequently, kids began to get bored fairly soon. Saying that, kids will have a blast first time visiting. Cafe has reasonible coffee.
  • Staff and volunteers that are so excited about science that they are great at engaging the little ones and adults alike. Also, lots of great new attractions worth checking out. A must go to place for kids of all ages.
  • Good selection of exhibits and a nice selection of talks given at just the right pace and level for kids. The restaurant provides a nice selection of coffee, cakes and food. The only thing here is that some of the exhibits are damaged, old and really need to be replaced to gain another star.
  • Great experience for all ages. Want to attend the next adults evening they have
  • An interesting attraction, good for little children and active minds, staff attitude is positive and enthusiastic
