  • 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.
