As part of the Your Cardiff series of blog posts, we ask people in the city what makes Cardiff great for them.

Sian, little Alanna-Beth and family visited Cardiff from Yate in England. “We went to Techniquest and the kids absolutely loved it”.

Techniquest, in Cardiff Bay, combines science and fun with over 160 exhibits including a planetarium, science theatre and discovery room.  “Their favourite was the shadow maker that captures your shadow for a moment.”

Sian combined the scientific with the historic for an educational edge to her family’s trip. “We also love that there are some historical sites in Wales. I’m homeschooling the boys so whenever there’s some extra to add to it, I’m very happy.”
