Techniquest (Stuart Street, Cardiff) — There are more than 130 interactive exhibits at this waterfront center — from hot air balloons, and hydrogen rockets, down to chunky puzzles. There is quite literally something for everyone, from children to grandparents.
Techniquest’s Planetarium has a new projector allowing visitors to see the night sky as never before. There’s also a Science Theatre which stages curriculum-linked shows for schools during term time…and shows for all the family at other times. Techniquest welcomes public visitors throughout the year and is open both days at the weekend, on Bank Holidays and all week during school holidays (from 10 am to 5 pm). During the school year, Techniquest is closed on Mondays and on opening hours from Tuesday to Friday from 9.30 am to 4.30 pm.
