Great place to spend the day with the kids
Nov 2020
Great, hours of fun and very educational. We really enjoyed the Robotic dinosaurs and a the science and technology on show. Only sad thing was that one or two of the exhibitions are closed due to COVID19.

Such a great learning experience!

WOW! This was infotainment at its best! We got to actually do chemistry experiments. Kids really enjoyed all the learning activities! A MUST for school groups, as well as individuals wanting to get their kids off the internet!

So impressed

I was duly impressed with all the exhibits on display and especially how interactive it was. An ideal place to take students/children to learn with a hands in approach.

Wonderful place for children!
Jan 2020 • Family
We held a birthday party for my grandson at Sci- Bono. Rented a special room for birthday party. Received excellent support from staff. Lots and lots of things to stimulate the minds of young children. The science experiments for kids are very good and the kids enjoyed it a lot.
Reasonable priced and safe parking. Highly recommended!

Family fun!

It’s often hard to find a museum that accommodates all ages. My eleven and fourteen year olds thoroughly enjoyed themselves here. There was loads of hands on activities for them to partake in and the staff were super interactive and friendly. I highly recommend a visit if your children love science!

Well worth a visit
Jan 2020 • Family
On arrival we were welcomed by enthusiasm and energy by the welcoming team. The centre has mainly interactive displays and enough friendly, hands-on staff to assist and support learning. We planned on spending 3 hours at the centre, but ended up spending 5, and racing through the final few displays. The areas are clean a d well organised. Our children loved it.

Brilliant, excellent and wonderful
Sep 2019 • Family
Absolutely fantastic day our for children and I had a great time also... you need to be there for the day. There’s a nice little coffee shop. The climbing wall is great, the exhibits are terrific and the mini planetarium are all a must do. Take sneakers for the climbing wall. The whole place is amazingly interactive and children can climb, build, play and have super fun.... take your kids, it’s superb and CHEAP.

Surprisingly good
Sep 2019 • Family
Brought my two boys (10 and 12) for a Sunday afternoon. We had a slight problem purchasing tickets as the desk was not manned and it felt like we were waiting an eternity. The staff were polite though and apologized for the delay. A family ticket was fantastic value at R180. I was a bit worried my kids would enjoy themselves as they live in a world filled with technology but they had a great time (as did my husband and I) some really fun and interesting exhibits. We were there for nearly 3 hours and did not get to see everything, so I've promised my boys I'll take them back.

Fun in a ruin
Jun 2019 • Family
Eish. This wonderful space is rather in a state of disrepair. We had a birthday party there and as a venue, the idea is great. It is spacious, but the whole feeling was one of neglect and playing on a building site or in a ruin. The climbing wall was the main attraction, but the rest of the exhibits were largely unattended, unavailable or just broken. I did not feel proud of it and the children did not learn much or anything new at all. I will certainly hesitate to recommend it to others. Pity.
