  • So varied, infinitely interactive and versatile to cater for children of all ages and interests! From experiences with sound through almost life size town simulation to interactive installations about the human body and mind and interactive story telling for younger ones. On a nice day the outside play areas are great too. If in the area we would definitely come back.
  • Great fun and lots of interactive activities and pretend play. My son spent ages in the garage pretending the fix cars and fill them with petrol. Highly recommended.
  • Visited for the second time with at least a five year gap, very little seemed to have changed in that time. Some sections were excellent but it was looking quite run down in places (chipped signage). My main problem was the price - over £50 for two adults and two kids, admittedly this is for an annual pass but we live two hours drive away and doubt we will return. Oh and they also want £3 for parking.
  • This is a great place for the kids but had to queue up to get in a long wait that stretches outside the building so if it's cold it wouldn't be ideal. I think it's suited to younger kids mainly primary school and older and it just wouldn't be of interest.
  • Great place to take babies, toddlers ad children. Super friendly staff and annual pass is good value.
