We had a great day at The Thinktank. My children are 23, 19 and 9 and there was something to do and learn for everybody. With my children being different age groups it is sometimes difficult to find something to enjoy as a family but we had an amazing day. From the engineering to the biology and the Science Garden....

Visited the centre using club card vouchers. The range of exhibits is good and there's plenty to look at for all ages. The exhibits are well labelled and there is plenty of hands of stuff for everyone to have a go at. All the staff we encountered on our visit were really friendly and helpful. We also visited the science... More

This place actually turned out to be better than i expected. Me and my son visited today and found plenty of interesting exhibits and some with some nice interactivity elements- though I do think they could come up with yet better creations and immersing environments. We watched 'Wonders of the Universe' in the Planetarium. This invoked a wow factor as... More

Visited with friends and all in all it was a very pleasant afternoon. The attractions are very interactive and informative. It was quite expensive, especially if travelling in a group. I would recommend if it's a rainy day or you've got the kids for the weekend!

Visited here for the first time with my little boy. We both had a great day. Some of the exhibitions are a little bit old for his age group but the day is what you make it. He enjoyed going round and exploring everything that this place has to offer and so did I. Some of the interactions within the... More

I think Thinktank is something for everybody. It is suitable for all ages and I think that the play areas are helpful. Thinktank is unique and I haven't been to a museum which is as interactive as this one and is attuned to all types of people from young children to teens. I keep coming back for more.

We took the family and cousins from Guildford. The experience was enlightening for the whole family whose ages ranged from 7 years old to 70. The inter activity of the exhibits was stimulating.Outside on the patio is an interactive educational playground. What a great day out.
