  • 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.

  • Just a great fun place teaching about science without kids realising. I've loved going here since I was a child and now love taking my boys. Gift shop is well priced too I picked up some Welsh language posters cheaper here that on the net.
  • Great fun at toddler day. First Friday of the month under 4's are free. You can go in and out all day if you want. Loads to do and different theme each time means that there are different things to do
  • Took my children here and they had a great time. So much to do. Highly recommend
  • My four year old went for a school trip and absolutely loved it. Fun and educational with lots to see and do.
  • Absolutely fantastic. The children thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Thank you to all the fab staff.
