Fuimos al After Dark y sin duda lo recomendaría a todos. Ciencia y cocteles de 18:00 a 22:00. Volvería cualquier día sin ninguna duda. Encantada more »We went to the After Dark and would definitely recommend it to everyone. Science and cocktails from 18:00 to 22:00. I would come back any day without a doubt. Delighted
This place is brilliant. I will come back multiple times. The exhibits are more interesting and better quality than any government funded science centre I've ever been to–and I've been to dozens. The "science" is great for adults and enough exhibits to keep kids busy for days. The "light and visual" section is outstanding. π
This place instantly became one of my favorite places, ever! I was amazed and entertained all the 4 hours I spent there on their Thursday After Dark events. I could easily have spent a couple more hours and it still might have not been enough to see/try it all. It's just so much fun to interact with everything and get a better understanding of how things work. I simply love it and I'll definitely come back if I ever have the chance.
