    So many facilities and things to do, so you can't possibly get bored. I was so excited to visit the Constructing Worlds exhibition. It was a great experience for me and I would like to enjoy this beautiful building again.

    I love the fact that this building and surrounding complex seems to be some 60s representation of what the future would look like. Getting around is basically impossible at ground level and you enter and exit the building on the second or third floor depending on which way you're heading.

    Some of the areas could definitely do with some love - it was raining when we were there and there were places where the water was leaking in! Still, cool place and generally cool exhibits. Just don't expect to have any phone signal. But you should be looking...Read More

As a space to be, there are tons of outlets, tables and wifi to go around,...Read More

    I just love being in this venue. It's so spacious and a good place to walk around to check out what's going on in terms of art exhibitions or theatre stuff. I went to the cinema to see Arrietty with a special friend here and I probably couldn't of picked a better venue to see a Studio Ghibli film :)
