Author's Review

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.
