  • To be honest, I expected more. maybe it's meant for little kids, but adults can't get anything serious there. Even the films shown cannot close the gaps. Maximum 2 hours and you can finish your...

  • I haven't been to the Science in years, but our Godson just turned 5 and they have never been before. It really hasn't changed as in hands on and exhibits to see. Some of the new exhibits were really good. He loves space, so level 4 was visited a couple of times. Excellent place to take the kids so they can learn, touch and experiment. We arrived there just after 10 and left after 3. Staff great , exhibits and everything else was really good. Thank you for a good day. Bubba.
  • A good place for Science lover and curious. So much to explore in a day, I'll say you'll need minimum 3 days to explore this place and appreciate everything. I took the annual pass to make sure I'll get to enjoy the place. With the pass you get to bring guests and free parking, 12 movie passes. It's hard to give details here, I think the experience is well worth it.
  • Science experiments on the go .. beautifully presented concepts and so so many things to explore . The ground floor had many sections where there are properties of magnets , fulcrum, pulley and so so much of physics with reasoning. The biology section has such pretty demonstable skeletons . The second floor is more of Watch and learn. The fourth floor has the kids of the toddler section which was so well maintained and equipped. . There are pretend castles and. play area . The planetarium lies on the same floor where a few cool display are present . I feel it’s a must visit .. my 5 year old loved it ❤️❤️
  • This place will always be my favourite place to visit. And not just for the nostalgia it provides, but it’s always endless fun and many things to explore and see and do - for ALL ages. What also makes this place so great is the incredible staff. The scientists and staff come and greet you and ask how you are and if you need anything. It’s such a happy and friendly environment, it’s no wonder there are so many children enjoying this lovely centre. My 4 year old loved it so much, we spent around 5 hours here because it was so interesting, engaging and welcoming. I’ve been going to this Science Centre since I was a small girl and will continue to for many more years to come.
  • This is the most recommended place for kids. Visited the science centre with my 4 Years old. They had lots of fun and learning experience. There are 5 levels - we could visit only Bugs hall and Space one. Kidzone is super fun. Experience and recommendations: 1. You can not cover this place in one visit so better to buy membership pass - Planetary pass. 2. Should plan full day as there are so many activities and level. Ticket says 30 minutes but it is an amazing place to spend days. 3. Also plan to see IMAX movies as kids will enjoy it. 4. You need to walk a lots so you may carry stroller for toddlers. 5. Weekends tickets are sold out quickly so plan in advance. The only hack is that members have special slots so you can find some slots if general category is booked. 6. There are experts available at each level and can share their knowledge. Have fun and teach science.
