With an aim to improve education in science, Techniquest offers hands-on displays, exhibits, and workshops. While the discovery center provides hands-on exploration, a planetarium and a science theater entertain and educate. These exhibitions travel to schools and other public places to make science accessible for all. However, you can see them all under one roof at the center. Make Techniquest a centerpiece of your Cardiff vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Cardiff trip itinerary builder tool.

This place needs a massive refresh if it to remain open in the future.
