We went to this place not expecting much. Most science museums geared towards children are a disappointment; however, that is definitely not the case here. Our young ones loved all the interactive exhibits. Even the shows kept them entertained. We left with our kids talking about all the fun they had. I would highly recommend this place if you have...

We had just 2 hours so I found techniquest and decided to pay a visit. There were lots of stalls there and the kids could interact and learn from their experiences. Mainly al physics based concepts. Some that I found great were the shadow picture and the oil rig water density experiment. There were some school tours there which made... More

My young grandson loved his visit. He enjoyed trying all the different things. All the children there were having such fun and the adults too.

This was next to our hotel and we took our 14-month old son. Although he was quite young there was still some things he enjoyed especially around the music. We also had fun trying out the different things. Unfortunately we were there when there was a bus load of school children so it was quite busy, but will definitely go... More

Techniquest is and amazing experience for young children. This is also a great place for school groups and clubs. But in the last 5 years or so nothing has been added to here it is also very crowded and noise. Personally I don't think it's a great value for money.

We stopped off here for a few hours on our way through to West Wales. Our two children (4 and 8) absolutely loved it. There was so much to look at and lots of hands on stuff. It was quite busy but not cramped. The café is a bit basic but on a nice day you can sit outside with... More

This place is great if you want to kill few hours while enjoying the Bay area. Our son loved it there, you'll get a wristband so you can leave for some food and go back for some more fun!
