More for young scientists, school holiday lectures were great, lots of other kids having a ball too. Good cafe for lunch, or there’s an area to sit and eat your own.

Great place for kids to discover and learn. Nice exhibits and good shows to enjoy. Bring your own food as kiosk price is a bit high.
