Absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE it here. Me and my brother come regularly with my toddler and we all have so much fun. Definitely recommend for any age! There is a great toddler area too and a super cute little gift shop. They also have events on a lot with talks and stuff during the school holidays. If you go in a weekday, it’s not busy at all! Perfect place for the family!
At the moment, I can't really give it a proper review, so this is my temporary review based on the museum only been party opened. The but that's still open is the computer and industry part ( the cotton mills) also the interactive kids section. The museum did put on a glam show today, which was entertaining but I did not see the connection with science... possibly because I was too busy watching the glam acts and singing along to Abba rather than listening to the narrative. I will review when I revisit when the other sections are reopened.
