“Small but informative centre!”
As I've mentioned in the title, the discovery centre is rather small. Though it is educational and informative, some of the exhibits seem to need upgrades/maintenance. It was smaller than I expected...
Lots of displays showing animals, agriculture, space, technology. A lot of reading, young children activity area, not too much hands on.
“A great place for inquisitive children”
If you have children with an interest in anything involving insects, the environment this could be a great place to spend a few hours, especially on a wet or hot day as it is all indoors.
