Our son is not yet 2, but thoroughly enjoyed many of the activities, as did my husband. There was so much to do and we spent the most amount of time in the play area. We had lunch, which was very reasonably priced and nice....More

Decided to give this a visit when we saw the Robot Exhibition advertised. You can get the kids in for free when you have bus/train/metro/city sightseeing bus tickets which was a great saving. Planetarium worth a visit which had a few storylines on throughout the...More

Exhibitions here change every few months. The robot exhibition was on when we went, and it was very enjoyable, especially for children, though adults enjoyed it too. There is plenty going on, different activities for children such as scientific experiments they can carry out themselves.

Probably better/quieter on a Saturday, as your nearest Car Park is Times Square which is used by workers through the week. If you're going to Life centre, try to go on the 4d cinema ride, its great!
