Techniquest Cardiff details...

Both fun and educational, Techniquest Cardiff is a fabulous hands-on science centre in Cardiff Bay. It is filled with exciting activities for kids and adults alike. Where else can you see a giant pneumatic dragon, move half a ton of granite, fire a giant pop gun and launch a rocket all in one day?

It’s not surprising that Techniquest is one of the most popular days out with the kids in South Wales. There is a host of interactive exhibits, including 50 new exhibits in 2021, and an exciting programme of shows and events in the Science Theatre.

Techniquest Cardiff also has a digital Planetarium offering the opportunity to experience the stars as never before, and learn about the constellations. Themes of Planetarium shows vary during the year.

Science Theatre and Planetarium shows normally run at weekends and in school holidays. You’ll find plenty to keep all ages happy for a couple of hours or more. There is a cafe selling refreshments and a shop with gadgets, gifts, and souvenirs for all the family.

Toddler Days run regularly during term time. On these dates pre-school children enjoy exclusive access to the exhibits. There may be extra activities on offer, all designed to encourage young children to develop an interest in science.

When the weather’s cold or wet you need never leave the building, but if it’s fine and you fancy a break, all the sights of Cardiff Bay are on the doorstep. If you’ve a birthday coming up in the family, check out the kids birthday party package including time on the exhibition floor, a show in the Science Theatre, invitations, food and goody bags in a private party area.

Please see Techniquest’s website to find out more and book your tickets.
