What's on

Toddler Day


Fri 3 February 2023


10:00 am–5:00 pm


On Toddler Days, pre-school children have exclusive run of the exhibits in a safe environment.
  Book tickets

  • The bright colours on the exhibition floor appeal to young children, who are encouraged to explore. Techniquest is buggy-friendly, with nappy-changing facilities and lockers available.
  • We have a water area so it’s a good idea to bring a change of clothes for the little ones.
  • Hot and cold drinks and snacks will be available to purchase from Coffee Mania. Please note that food and drinks cannot be consumed on the exhibition floor, however there is a Picnic area available for use. We regret that there will be no bottle or food warming facilities.
