Fun science show - even though my daughter was too nervous to take part in the experiments in the show, she sat back, laughed, and had a fab time! She got stuck on one of... More

Our six year old asked to visit on Sunday afternoon. We have visited before but the difference between then and now was marked. All of the exhibits were clean and working, there were new items to explore. The show was entertaining and educational. We will be visiting again.

There are four zones spread across two buildings with a full array of interactive displays - some showing the science behind how things work whilst others are brain teasers to test adults and children alike. It was very busy today - everyone sheltering from Storm Doris - but not so... More

Thank you for your very full and helpful review.... We were glad to hear that, although it was crowded, you were able to visit the exhibits without too much difficulty. Sometimes it's difficult to judge the right level of staffing without incurring too high running costs and hence higher costs to visitors. Sometimes we underestimate the vagaries of the weather...

Techniquest is a definite must for young families. It keeps them interested from start to finish. The Space destination catches the imagination of all with the interaction with the staff member.
