Attraction Information

Techniquest aims to inspire and inform the scientists of the future!

The UK’s longest established science discovery centre develops and sells exhibits to similar venues all over the world. Designed to make real science fun and engaging for all ages, the centre has attracted over 4 million people since it opened in 1986.

There are lots of interactive exhibitions throughout the centre, including areas where children can play with water and learn about damns, discover how electricity works and touch it with your fingertips and work a robot arm! There are extra special exhibits that change regularly throughout the year, which means there’s always something new to see, learn and do!

Don’t forget your lab coat!
