Took our toddler here and didn't really find it suitable for a 2 year old, would have been better if he had been older. Also, I was given a pass in English to use all the games but it didn't work but my husband's Chinese one worked. So pretty useless for me and all my son was bothered about was... More

I went with a group of Children and they loved it. Children around Kindergarten age would enjoy it most.

Upon entering the museum guests receive a badge that they then use to activate the different exhibits. English speakers get a badge that shows the information... More

We go to this science centre regularly since we live so close. After every visit my 2 year old asks to go back. Originally I thought it would be too old for him but there is definitely more than enough to entertain him for over an hour. The exhibits on light and sound are really interesting. There is always a... More

The Sony ExploraScience is a hands-on science education play and learn centre, for want of a better description. I think it is particularly suited to young children but may also appeal to some older ones and the young-at-heart as well. It is definitely not suited to very young children, in my opinion. When I bought my ticket, the girl told... More
