Techniquest is the UK's leading Science Discovery Centre. There are 120 exciting hands-on exhibits: puzzles, challenges and scientific marvels, to enthuse and amuse the whole family. Then there's a Planetarium, a Lab and a hi-tech Science Theatre.
Techniquest is a great family outing, and also an excellent educational visit. Schools attend our special programmes during term time. During holidays and weekends you meet people of all ages - all finding out that science can be fun.
Techniquest's goal is to develop people's understanding and appreciation of science. It is aimed at both educational groups and leisure visitors, and operates a vigorous outreach programme in addition to the facilities of the building in Cardiff Bay.
Techniquest develops, designs and fabricates almost all of its own exhibits. All graphics and publications are also designed in-house. The exhibit-building team includes the following disciplines: cabinet-making, computer programming, electronic engineering, pattern-making, plastics forming, precision engineering, paint shop, pneumatics, etc.
Techniquest provides a total area of nearly 3000m2, half of which is permanent exhibition space on two levels. Over 160 exhibits invite visitors to explore scientific phenomena in an enjoyable, safe manner.
