  • We visit once a year when we visit our Welsh family. Reasonable prices but even better if you have Tesco Clubcard vouchers. They have added new exhibits but kept a lot of the old favourites. There is ...  more »
  • We went to the site because one of the people really wanted to visit, to get there. The site is really amazing and interesting, consisting of a 100% interactive environment, leads the visitor to think, learn and have fun all at the same time. If you're traveling with children or family this is an experience that should be added to the list. Entry price is fair and there is no time limit to remain in place.

  • 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 café 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.
