  • The upstairs is under renovation it getting on for half price so still good value. My 3 Yr old had a blast. Staff really interactive and great with the kids. He got to make a rocket, dig for fossils and loved the story time by the cafe. Would come back but maybe wait until renovation is finished
  • Great for a day out with the kids but I'd really like it if they could change round a few of the older displays. We only go 2 or 3 times a year and we really enjoy it but some of the exhibits are getting a little tired. Great staff though!
  • Amazing afternoon. Staff were awesome tutorials informative and engaged the kids so well. Definitely well worth the visit and highly recommend.
  • What a great place for spend a day with family. We spend like 3 or 4 hours there just playing with kids, listening to educated stuff etc...
  • Terribly noisy there yesterday due to works going on upstairs so that area was out of bounds.The ticket was cheaper to make up for this however I don't think 1. a sandpit filled with bark chippings where the kids can dig for fossils 2. A wall with wooden toys to play with 3. The theatre where we saw dinosaurs 4. Learning how to make a projectile 5. A large head with a slide ( and a dirty worn tongue to climb over 6. A couple of body displays 7. Computer games with dirty keyboards all aimed at 6and above Constitutes a science museum ! The staff were very helpful and did all they could to make what I here was a bit more interesting., Thank goodness for them! The whole place needs an uplift
