At Techniquest you can bring science to life through a huge variety of hands-on exhibits.

Set in the heart of Cardiff Bay, there are two floors of mesmerising models, marvellous machines and mind-boggling interactive displays: launch a rocket, try your hand at virtual surgery, experience a real-life earthquake and even feel the force of a hurricane!

There’s something for all ages to enjoy with over 100 exhibits linked to five key themes: space, the environment, chemistry, biomedical science and world issues.

You can even take your Techniquest experience home with you by using an xTag while you’re there. You’ll be able to keep a record of all your activities and findings with it and share with friends and family. Plus, you’ll be able to use it to dig deeper into the science behind the things you’ve seen, long after your visit is over.

You’ll also find puzzles, books, science kits and more in Techniquest’s shop — the largest gift shop in the Bay. 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.

Techniquest welcomes visitors throughout the year. To check the latest opening times and prices and to book, head to
