Took my boys aged 5 and 8 to the Science centre last week. Fun way to learn and entertain them for a morning. Watched the Bubbles and Balloons show. And the planetarium show. Everyone had an enjoyable time.

Our grandchildren were visiting from Queensland and were excited to visit this wonderful hands on activity centre where practical science comes to life. Great for a few hours entertaining education.
