Techniquest

The UK's longest-established science centre

Please bear with us! As we continue essential building work in preparation for our Science Capital, our floor space is limited on the upper level of Techniquest and means we are currently operating at a reduced capacity for the safety and comfort of our visitors. However, all our exhibits and shows are still available and will remain open for you to enjoy during your visit.

Plan your visit: please check out our What’s On guide for more info, and guarantee your entry by booking online. We apologise for any inconvenience caused during this time.
