Toddler Days

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.

Little ones and not-so-little ones just love Techniquest’s Toddler Days!

Once a month, during term time, pre-school children take priority on Techniquest’s exhibition floor. There are additional activities all aimed at encouraging young children to take their first steps in science.

  • 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.
  • Tea and coffee will be available to purchase from Clevercoffee. Cold drinks, snacks, crisps and chocolate will also be available. We regret that there will be no bottle or food warming facilities.
