Science for everyone - from tots to grandparents!

There are so many reasons to visit Techniquest, the hands-on interactive science discovery centre in the heart of Cardiff Bay, with more than 120 mind-boggling exhibits, spectacular Science Theatre and Planetarium shows for all the family at weekends and during school holidays

See the stars as never before as we take a journey through space for a close-up look at distant galaxies and exploded stars at the fascinating presenter-led shows in Wales’ only digital Planetarium.

There’s something to keep everyone entertained for a couple of hours or more… plus you’ll find puzzles, books, science kits and much more in Techniquest’s shop. When it’s time for a break, take a seat in the coffee shop and choose from its wide selection of locally-sourced drinks, sandwiches and snacks.

Once you have your Techniquest wristband, you are free to come and go all day, so why not pop out for a stroll around the Bay and make your visit into a whole day out?

Techniquest welcomes public visitors throughout the year and is open at the weekend, on Bank Holidays and all week during school holidays (from 10 am to 5 pm). During school term time Techniquest will be closed on Mondays and the opening hours from Tuesday to Friday are 9.30 am to 4.30 pm.
