The Northeast Sights

Fodor's Review

Three high-tech shows and 60 kid-oriented exhibits bring science to life, from research on genes to travel to Mars. The "Curiosity Zone" is full of hands-on scientific gizmos that make scientific learning feel more like a trip to the playground, including fun experiments to demonstrate magnetism and chain reactions. There's also a café and an ice-skating rink in winter. Ask about £10 family tickets for groups of four.
