  • The visit was not pleasant! Very confusing place with children screaming and running around... In addition, a number of activities are broken or poorly maintained. It's a shame because this kind of place is potentially interesting but too many things spoil the visit

  • Had a blast here yesterday on a date! Even though it’s mostly for kids, adults can still have a fun time too! Lots of activities and games for all to enjoy. I would recommend seeing an imax film while your here. Best experience in my opinion if you haven’t already. Could spend the whole day here easily with family and friends where it can be filled with fun and actioned packed events here at the science center!
  • We've been taking our son here since he was few months old. He's 4 now, and he still loves going there. They keep the content and displays fresh and updated on a regular basis. It's even educational and entertaining for the parents. Definitely a great place to take the kids for some indoor learning fun.
