Some reviews from Facebook:
“We spent nearly 2 hours in the new venue today and I had to drag my girls away! Loads of fun experiments in a friendly environment – it’s a great way of encouraging the scientists of the future. We can’t wait until our next visit.” Rachel Miles
“Brilliant day out. Fun for the kids and the parents learn lots too…. I was surprised how much my 2 & 4 year olds already knew AND how much they picked up in such a short space of time. Fantastic!” Lisa Dawson-Stevens
“What a brilliant local gem. We’ll definitely be buying a family annual pass. Thanks for a great afternoon.” Kelly Davies
“We have had a lot of fun every time we visit, my boys love it as do my childminded children, all ages get something out of it (age range 2-10 years) and are always asking to go back.” Faye Brierley
