“Great for the kids ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 days ago NEW via mobile

Great concept, well designed. The kids loved the interactive exhibition. Adults too. Its kept clean as well. The staff are not the greatest though, they're not exactly falling over themselves to help or explain anything. A short introduction or guide map at the entrance will add much value.

“Great for kids”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 weeks ago

The bad weather meant we found ourselves in Sci-Bono. It was great for the children with so much to see and be interactive with. They loved learning and playing at the same time. Staff could have done more, mostly sat around and felt like it was a big ask to help show us how the various exhibits worked

“Fun rainy morning out with busy boys”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 weeks ago via mobile

We had a great morning out at Sci Bono, not the most helpful staff but easy enough to get around the museum and lots of activities for all ages.

“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.
