Loads of fun stuff to see and do here, for adult and kids alike. If you have a spare half a day or so, definitely visit Science World - keep the kids happy with all the hands on things to do.

Enjoy the changing exhibitions at this place. Trying out some of their experiments is a dream come true since it brings out the youth in me. Attended art exhibits at Science World on different occasions.
