Additional toddler-friendly activities

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

  • 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.
  • You’re welcome to breastfeed on the exhibition floor, but if you would prefer to use a private space instead, then The Pod is available too.
    Babies at Techniquest will also give you more helpful information on bringing your youngest to visit us.

Storytime + Make & Take: Pip & Egg

Pip is a seed from a glorious tree, and Egg is a bird’s egg from a nearby nest.

Join us in an interactive sensory adventure as we see Pip and Egg grow, learn about true friendship and make our own spring crafts.
