    A great place to visit on a rainy day! Lots and lots to do, hands on activities very much like 'Wonderlab' at the Science Museum in London but bigger and better! Facilities are good, especially the free cloakroom where you can leave buggies and coats.

    We visited techniquest for the second time in 2 weeks. The first time we came, unfortunately the planetarium wasn’t open, as it was during term time. It was a shame as our kids are home educated, but it is what it is. We enjoyed ourselves so much that we decided to come back and take the 3 hour drive today, purely to get to see the star tours, now that the planetarium was open. The gentleman that ran the show was wonderful. He was very informative and the show had the potential to be great. Unfortunately it seems that a number of people didn’t take notice of the fact the show was supposed to be for children 7+. There were a number of very young children and their parents talking through the entire show. I’m not referring to the interactive segments where the gentleman was asking if anyone knew the name of the planets or the galaxy we are in. I’m referring to talking over the entire show! We missed quite a bit what was said and a young child was banging their feet against the seating the entire time. A bit of feedback- if you do keep allowing young children to join in the presentation, it may be worth putting up a sign or even mentioning at the beginning of the show kindly asking that if children aren’t able to sit and listen to the show, to please take them outside so others can enjoy the show. It’s a real shame that everyone else that was trying to pay attention to the show, weren’t able to hear above the constant talking. It was a real let down.
