Great day out with our 8 year old, who turned out to be our tour guide as he had been here before with his school. We got 25% off adult prices by using discount from vouchercloud. It is a great place with so many topics...More

A great space full of things to interact with. Over several floors there is always something interesting to see and the kids (toddlers and teens) all love the outdoor play space.

Thinktank is one of the most wonderful science museums there are. Very interactive, dynamic and educational. Even a 2 year old or a 30-something can have fun there. Lots of things to see and experience, learning while playing. The planetarium show is a good addition...More

Feels a bit expensive for the offered exhibition, but you can see a huge skeleton of the great deer and a skull of triceratops - both are incredibly impressive.

Didn't enjoy this as much as our visit 2 years ago. Many of the exhibits are out of action and the buttons don't work. Needs more for older children. Looking a bit tired

Don't know, but it will take you about 25 minutes to walk. If by car use your satnav to the Millenium Point multi storey car park. However, as per my review, go early as you may have to queue to find an available space.
