About this activity

We certainly love to play, and we bet you do too!

Wonderscope Children's Museum has dedicated itself to allow and encourage children to learn through the power of play.  They have provided fun, inter-disciplinary exhibits revolving around arts and science for all those creative, inquisitive and playful minds under 10. 

Now kids, unfortunately if you do come and play here you do have to follow one rule - Make sure you are hands on with EVERYTHING!  

Think you can do that?  They want you to touch, play, experience, learn and enjoy everything before moving onto your next super hands-on activity.  Here, you can also play along with your parents!  Parents - feel free to interact, join in and play with your kids, rather than sitting having a coffee on the side.

This museum is designed to be self guided, so if you or someone else needs something, make sure you ask!  But remember - you are here to play, enjoy, laugh, and touch - it's the best way to learn here and by feeling and smelling and testing everything, you will begin to understand how everything works much more clearly.  Trial and error!

There is a great Small Wonders room designed for children's from 6 months to 2 years or age where you can enter a world of make believe and pretend, create, climb, crawl, creep and play around this area designed especially for you! 

They definitely have the child's best learning and development interest at heart.
