Techniquest, Cardiff

#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 to visit - with 100's of experiments for you to try and then understand the science behind. The day I went it was raining and so was busy, but with all the experiments and the available space there always seemed to be something available and there was never a time that we had to wait. The language used to describe the science was at a good level for my children (8 and 11). The science theatre is a must, and really gets the children involved and is well thought out. Didn't use the cafe, but did use the lockers and other facilities with were well maintained and clean.
  • Great day out, our 4 and 2 year old love it there. I like that you can come and go so can leave to go for food and come back for a show or at a quieter period. Interesting, interactive displays and lots of help on hand to demonstrate 👍🏼
  • I love Techniquest, been going since I was a child and it never gets old. I love exploring the different demonstrations and discovering how things work. It’s a great educational experience for both kids and adults alike - and so much fun!
  • I took my 3 year old here a few Saturdays ago,as a backup to the pool which didn't open for another hour. I can remember going here when I was proably 6 or 7 with a school trip, not sure if it had changed much but brought back fond memories. Bro g 3 I wasn't sure if he would interact with everything, bit he really enjoyed it, we spent next to 3 hours there and he wasn't ever bored. It filled up quite quickly when we arrived, buy as there is so much to do there were not waits on any of the activities. This is a fantastic place for a rainy day outing, especially with half term coming up! Highly recommended!
  • Great day out for the kids and adults Only dissatisfied comment was we were a party of 8. And went in at 2.55pm and payed full price.. Didn't realise to later it was half price after 3pm... It would of been nice if the lady on reception mentioned it.
