Some brilliant hand on exhibits but the building sadly very tired. There is an adjacent tower where one can get views over the city and botanical gardens. Give this a miss once up there it’s dirty the ceiling falling in, rubble on the ground.

Unfortunately we were looking forward to taking the kids here but it now closed for a couple of months for maintenance. The rest of the park is a great oasis in the middle of the city.

Very informative and great for kids. Anti-gravity room was good fun and it’s not too far from the centre of town. Free entry to one of the best planetarium I’ve been too

The place ia really small with very little interactions and exhibits. I was disappointed to see this for a country that sent people to the space.
