What a fantastic day out. We spent 6 hours there and did not see everything. The planetarium is a must do and the kids and adults will enjoy the lecture on how rockets work (bangs and flashes)
Really like this place with the kids, we got a family ticket in Jan and you get to upgrade free to an annual pass so we’ve been loads, it’s good for all ages, my 3 year old and I go the most.
Brilliant place, lots to do for all age. Admission price was good too and it automatically changed into annual membership for free!
We attended today with our 6 year old son! We thought it was absolutely brilliant!
Visited with my husband and 2 boys age 4 and 6. We had the most amazing time from beginning to end! Highly recommend and cannot wait to go back!
