Huge compliment to the team at Sci-Bono. I had my son’s birthday party there yesterday morning and it was fantastic. Sci-Bono is so well run, the facilities are exceptional and the entire event was so well-co-ordinated. We had a brilliant tour where we interacted with...More

What a wonderful place in the middle of grotty Joburg! At the moment it is hosting the wonderful bodies that are plastersized! Great fun and not grotesque. This place is the most amazing 'museum' in Joburg!

Safe parking. Had to find someone to pay the entrance fee. Lots to do whether pensioners or children.

What a great adventure for kids. They get to learn about science through games and great interactivity from magnetics to electricity to sound waves and whole lot more. Kids go ballistic for the mind boggling array of displays.

I'm sure the Newtown location puts a lot of people off but it is very simple to find and not at all unsafe. Boomed parking right in front of the building as well. There is so much to do for children of all ages. Getting...More
