  • Great spot for discovery, learning and tons of fun for all, young and old! Very underrated, probably best discovery centre on the entire island. Will definitely come back!

The build your own race car bit wasn't really up to much and there was a bit broken on one exhibit and another was out of order. Other than that a good day with both physical and mental activities a plenty
