#1 of 10 in Childrens Museums in Wales
With an aim to improve education in science, Techniquest offers hands-on displays, exhibits, and workshops. While the discovery center provides hands-on exploration, a planetarium and a science theater entertain and educate. These exhibitions travel to schools and other public places to make science accessible for all. However, you can see them all under one roof at the center.

  • Great place for all ages. The different stations worked your mind in different ways, these for adults and children. We also went to the planetarium show which was informative and interesting for my 5 year old. Enough room to move around with a pushchair, however there is a pushchair park too. A lift is available too if needed. Staff were friendly and helpful, getting involved at different points. The cafĂ© there is decent but basic and toilet facilities are also good.
  • We had a brilliant day here. The staff were very helpful and knew about the exhibits. They kept everything in the right place so you could look at them properly and it wasn't too busy, despite its visiting in the summer holidays. We will definitely be back
  • Great day out for people of all age groups. Basically a scientific museum with many science based exhibits. Nice experience overall.
  • This was one place that my 6 year old son enjoyed most out of all the places we visited in Cardiff. Lots to experiment and adults equally enjoy. Loved the planetarium. Well spent 4 hours..
  • Really interesting and pleasant place to go with the kids. they keep entertained the whole time. We spend about 3 hours inside and felt like 1. It was our second visit and we will for sure come back again.
