I could stand and watch these machines for hours! There are lots of things to keep all the family amused and plenty of buttons to press to make things move. Even the big kids enjoyed it! A good couple of hours entertainment.

Been to many places, visited lots of kids’ aimed attractions... this one is BY FAR THE BEST interactive science museum we have ever visited!!!! Science-heads, physics-heads, mechanic-heads and creative-heads this is place for you!!!!
Six friends dropped in after the usual Shakespeare stuff and were knocked out by the off-the-wall mechanical exhibits. We couldn't help but marvel at the ingenuity of the creators of these exhibits; many of them made us laugh. Mostly hands on. Definitely left with a...More

Even as a family with a 9yr old child, it only took us an hour. Worth getting the joint ticket with the Guildhall and Shakespeare's School rooms if you are interested in a bit of history of the place and Shakespeare.
