“Kids will love it here!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 January 2017

Exploring Joburg, I had to visit this science center.

There are many cool do it yourself science experiments and practical things to do there.

It is more directed towards kids though, so don't forget the little ones at home. There is even a play area for kids and a small cafe to buy a bit to eat.

“Inner City wonder”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 January 2017

One of the best activities to do with younger children (aged say 5-11) - they love the interactive displays and learn while playing - great for a rainy miserable day.

“A Must for all provinces”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 January 2017

I was blown away by the experience at Sci-Bono Discovery Centre. First of all it is very cheap, but don't let that fool you into thinking it is not worth your time. We only had 1½ hours but you definitely need more time to see everything. I wonder how I went through high school science without ever visiting this wonderful place. Relevant for locals as well as tourists, young and old.

“We love science ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 January 2017 via mobile

A visit to Sci-Bono is the perfect rainy day activity. Entrance is affordable, but you will pay extra for additional workshops and activities. Cost was R10 per activity but this optional. There's definitely alot to ans takes up an entire day. The kids ages 6, 8, 11 and 12 had a blast. Even us adults found things to do. Food at the restaurant was pretty average. Our only gripe is that the activities are very unorganised ans often overlap. It's highly recommended that Sci-Bono have a map of things to do which will assist parents in planning the day better
