This museum is interesting. Despite most of the explanations having little english it was still possible to appreciate the displays. This may be "old hat" to some, but the robot completing the rubix cube was fun to see. So was the space suit. There is...More

Went through the science museum in 2hrs. Had lots of experiments to try and interesting facts to learn. Honestly, when I was in school 30 years ago I was taught aluminium wasn't affected by magnets. The experiments there proved otherwise! Cheap day out.
