Went during summer. Kids loved it, but it didn't live up to the hype. Lots of exhibits were closed, loads of walking to find the fun stuff, but I have to say I loved the rainforest area. It's one of those things I'm glad my kids experienced but won't be going back anytime soon.

Growing up this was my favourite place to visit. Having taken my children many times I find that it is not what it used to be. While it is definitely fun for the children, it is lacking the education that it used to have. It feels that everything is set up to be moved around, nothing feels "finished" like it used to. My biggest frustration was the placement of some pseudoscience displays such as acupuncture. As a previous reviewer stated, there needs to be areas that discuss cutting edge science and it needs the polish that it used to have.Perhaps some of the problems are due to funding, but the second floor (where the gift shop used to be) is now barren and should have displays. I am sad that I am more disappointed with each visit.

I love this place, even as an adult. Currently resting at a middle of the road review from me as, I assume from a funding issue, an incredible amount of stations (I'll guess up to 20%), especially the ones that are still there from when I was a child, are long broken and no longer work. Second, some areas are so crammed with things to do (not necessarily a bad thing), it makes it very difficult to hear what the station's pre-recording is saying. Leading to a lot of children stopping for 3 seconds, noticing it's hard to hear, move on, in their over stimulated mode. Lastly, one thing I was sad I didn't see was innovation. I saw very little "new" science areas that captivated attention with discoveries/inventions that are yet to become common knowledge. As a child, I recall the Science Center had stations with computers that had mouse devices attached. That was huge then and was years before they became households items. During my visit this week I saw no exhibits that basically showed "this is what the future holds". That's the stuff that captivated me as a kid.

Always fun to bring the kids to a couple times a year. Cool areas for kids of all ages. Friendly and helpful staff. Can get a little crowded especially if multiple school trips are milling around. Quite a few escalators so watch your step and tie your shoes.
