Enjoy a great family day out in Techniquest, Cardiff Bay - the UK's longest-established science centre. Fire a popgun, sink an oil rig or launch a hot air balloon as you play with more than 120 hands-on exhibits. See the stars as never before in Wales' only digital Planetarium, and take part in live demonstrations in the Science Theatre. Friendly staff are on hand to make sure you get the most from your visit. Take a break in the coffee shop and complete your Techniquest experience with a visit to the shop with its quirky gift ideas, toys, books and souvenirs. Everything is under one roof with easy wheelchair access, disabled toilets and a lift to all floors. Throughout the year there are special events including stargazing evenings, animal weekends, rockets, dinosaurs and MORE! Plus, all the sights and sounds of Cardiff Bay are right on the doorstep!
Techniquest in Cardiff really made a lasting impression on me. Not only were the staff really knowledgeable about everything to do with science, but they were quite slick in the way they put it across. I liked the way none of the staff talked down to those who may not know all there is to know about science. This attraction isn't just for school children, or those wishing just to learn about science. The team at Techniquest (Cardiff) have really gone out of their way to make this an attraction for all ages, and for that very reason we were unanimous that both Techniquest (Cardiff) & Techniquest (Glyndwr) made it into the Top 100 Attractions in Wales line up.
