Unfortunately we were unable to attend due to Covid19 (June 2020 - Secondary)




The trip was very successful for a number of reasons. The centre itself has lots to see and do and the quizzes provided beforehand were invaluable tools to keep the children engaged and focus their learning. The four different zones ensured a breadth of knowledge was covered. The workshop was well-led and the children were highly engaged. Many of the activities had been covered beforehand in class. It might have been useful to have more detailed scientific explanations during the workshop or even further learning challenges to be completed back in the classroom. (This is just a suggestion). Some of the activities in the 'fire' zone were out of order which was a little disappointing. (March 2020 - Primary)




Students enjoyed the day. The provider itinerary was useful and the provider led workshops were exciting. (March 2020 - Secondary)

Visit was safe and details provided by Magna were good. There were many aspects of the provider which weren't in use at the time of our visit. Overall, the children enjoyed their visit. (October 2019 - Primary)

A great place but some of exhibitions not working correctly. The workshop could do with some tweaks (the lady talked at them for 30 minutes!) (April 2019 - Primary)

An excellent opportunity for young people to be inspired by the exciting world of work in STEM careers. (April 2019 - Secondary)

The whole event is very well organised. Lots of different STEM activities/stalls to enthuse year 9s. (March 2019 - Secondary)




(March 2019 - Primary)




A lot of the features such as the big melt were not working or they weren't put on for our visit which was a bit of a shame for the amount of money the pupils spent. We weren't given prior warning of this either. (March 2019 - Primary)




Few of the exhibits were not in action. (March 2019 - Secondary)




(March 2019 - Primary)




The children enjoyed the day and the hands on experience. (March 2019 - Primary)




The site is very safe and controlled, staff well trained and friendly/ helpful. Children found the scale of the venue amazing and the exhibitions around MAGNA interactive and engaging. One or two exhibits not in service hence 4/5. (February 2019 - Primary)

The children really enjoyed the trip however there were a lot of interactive resources and equipment that were out of order. (November 2018 - Primary)




Excellent workshops and activities for the children to complete. The museum was very busy on the day that we attended but staff were well prepared for this and there were very good systems in place. A criticism might be that we waited for 'The Big Burn' exhibition to begin. It was listed as starting at 11 o'clock but after a ten minute wait nothing happened. There were a number of schools waiting. Only when I approached a museum guide was I told that there was a technical issue. (November 2018 - Primary)




Activity rooms are engaging and enjoyable for the children. The workshop was ot as effective due to the teacher talking for the majority of it rather than having the children do the work. (November 2018 - Primary)




This is a huge venue with lots to see and experience. It is very dark inside so take as many adults as you possibly can - definitely one to over-staff! There's so much to do and see; we didn't get time to do everything. (November 2018 - Primary)




Lots of hands-on activities for children to complete, never bored and very helpful staff. (October 2018 - Primary)




(October 2018 - Primary)




A great day had by all with meaningful learning experiences! Great demonstrations. (October 2018 - Primary)




Excellent visit as usual, though as we return each year we do find more and more of the experiments not working. I think it requires a little investment to bring everything up to scratch again. (September 2018 - Primary)

Excellent experience - the museum is so interactive and the children get a lot out of the areas. And the workshops make it focused in a fun way. Would definitely recommend to go along with any science topic! (February 2018 - Primary)
