The science museum is huge, covering five floors, so don’t expect to see it all in one day! Each floor looks at a different aspect of technology and science using displays and interactive information.

The ground floor looks at vehicles and space exploration. The first floor is dedicated to food, gas, structural metals and communications. On the second floor you can learn about nuclear power, printing and computing. The third floor looks at photography and optics with electricity and the top two floors concentrate on the science of medicine.

Entrance to the museum is free but there are additional charges if you want to go to the IMAX theatre or go on the simulator rides.

There are daily demonstrations and drama performances plus special exhibitions.

When you need food or drink there is a café, restaurant or you can take your own picnic to eat in designated areas. There is also a shop.
