Where can you launch a hot air balloon, blast a rocket, create an electrical circuit and watch a colony of ants at work all in one day? Techniquest - the hands-on science centre in Cardiff Bay.

It's no surprise that Techniquest has been voted best science centre in Europe in a recent industry survey. Children and adults alike are enthralled by the vast array of puzzles, gadgets and structures in the main exhibition hall. Then, when you tire of playing, you can relax and take in a show in the Science Theatre (Slime, musical sounds, energy and robots have all featured on the bill in 2007!), or gaze at the stars in the Planetarium.

At Techniquest there's also a café, offering hot and cold drinks, snacks and meals, and there's a shop with toys, books, interesting gifts and souvenirs.
