What a great place! Loads to do and super fun. The staff were great and even though it was busy there seemed to be loads of room. Had to shoe horn the kids out after 3 hours. Friendly staff too!

Good place to take the kids during half term, there is enough there to keep the occupied. The price is not too bad but parking can be a struggle.

I attended the toddler day with my 15 month old and we had an amazing day! There is so much to see and do for a toddler that it could easily have kept us busy all day!

On a rainy day in Cardiff, with nieces and nephews, there's nothing better to do that Techniquest! We spent nearly five hours in there - and didn't see all of it. The water play area was very popular with the youngest kids, while my older nieces loved the treasure box ustairs

It's excellent for kids 12 and under. Educational and fun. Great gift store with educational / science things . Small charge for some things but worth it . Allow half a day . Great cafe with sensible prices. Great location

Been here as a young child myself, as a teenager and most recently with my young family. An essential visit if you're around Cardiff Bay and have children.
