  • We spent almost a whole day inside. My three-year-old girl enjoyed it well enough, my six-year-old boy loved it. The best part was the lab were you get to wear a lab coat and actually do experiments.

  • The museum was packed with school children and the open plan of each floor meant that it was extremely noisy. It’s a great place for children to learn but adults will find it somewhat disappointing...

  • This place is just amazing for kids and adults alike. My four year world was just so excited and happy to be here. We can surely come back again and again. Great museum for older kids to understand the science behind many things. For small kids these are games, they just love playing and can't have enough of 😁
  • Always a fun experience, went there with my nephew 9 years old. He had a blast, running around touching everything. Some of the interactive set ups on the highest floor were not working properly though, like the eye tracking. Not a huge problem. Doing the experiments in the lab is highly recommended!
