On our school tour, the students thoroughly enjoyed our visit. You could easily spend a day there. Lots to see and experience, even if you are not a scientist.

Many different activities for kids, building, electricity, microscopes, magnets, water etc. Building is an old warehouse and we needed coats. Can only eat in designated area on the ground floor - this does ensure exhibits are kept clean. Staff did help when asked Got a...More
