More for young scientists, school holiday lectures were great, lots of other kids having a ball too. Good cafe for lunch, or there’s an area to sit and eat your own.

Hi all our exhibits are designed so they can be engaged with at many levels and hopefully the many adults that visit as part of family visits certainly gain a lot from the exhibition. If visiting during the weekends then we... More
