Arctic Wonder


Sat 4 December 2021


All Day



Pull on your warmest winter coat and get ready to explore the icy Arctic wastes with us, travelling thousands of miles to the Land of the Midnight Sun.

Step inside our super-snug planetarium for a 360° immersive experience. Follow the light of the North Star to learn more about the fascinating creatures that live in this frozen land, the weather that creates such dramatic landscapes and discover how scientists measure the impact of climate change on this vast and forbidding region.

At the end of the show, there will also be a short star tour.

  •   Where can I park?

    We are pleased to be able to offer all of our visitors discounted parking with Q-Park, our preferred parking partner.

    The Q-Park operates the Cardiff Bay car park in Pierhead Street which is around 8 minutes walk from Techniquest.

    We have agreed a special discount rate for our customers of 15% off all pre-bookings.

    There are also nearby pay-and-display car parks on Stuart Street and Havannah Street. Please do not park on Havannah Street itself.

    We regret that there is no parking on-site at Techniquest.

  •   Who is it for?

    Techniquest is suitable for all ages! We do have special events for certain groups, however — see Toddler Days and Home Educator days.
