A striking building with lots of potential but houses on the ground floor a poor example of an interactive museum/exhibition. Apparently aimed at children, many of the experiments just did not operate properlyand in some cases the aims, objectives and outcomes not fully explained. The...More

Well located close to the waterfront, car parks and aquarium. Provides interactive learning experience for kids of all ages with plenty to do. Also has an on site cafe which is ok.

Lots to see and to do here. But go with your eyes open. Prices for a family would be quite steep. Don't know if they are early bird deals but might be worth a look.

Yes, there is an admission fee which, at first seems a little expensive for a family visit to a museum but, there are so many fascinating exhibits on display, the cost really does seem worth it. The youngest in our party of four was my...More

Yes, we welcome all ages! We get lots of positive reviews from adult groups and couples. I recommend you book a Winter Stargazing show in the Planterium too, great for older kids. JG
