Saturday Spot: Se7en + 1 Visit The Cape Town Science Centre…

November 5th, 2012 · 6 Comments

While this weekend was a quiet weekend, last weekend was not!!! Last Saturday we spent the entire morning playing at The Cape Town Science Centre. Who wouldn’t want to spend hours playing in a totally hands-on scientific haven. We knew from past experiences that this would not be a quick visit… This is the kind of place you can take your kids to play and play and play. Eight kids, of different ages, totally happy and busy for hours.

Turns out our kids just can’t get enough construction!!!

There is lots to love about The Cape Town Science Centre… lots of busy activities and programs going on while you are there… inviting your kids to join in and participate. Lots of space and other children for your kids to play and interact with. The focus is on fun, and making all things scientific interesting for your children to play with. There are lots of folk out on the floor to help and engage the children with the exhibits. A coffee shop from where you can see your kids playing. Our kids would rank this spot high on their list of “must-see” outings in Cape Town!!!

Wishing you all a fabulous week!!!

    With all your fantastic and vivid pictures I feel like I was on this day trip with you all!!!! We don’t have a science center here…. But when I lived in Seattle we had one and it was my very favorite place to take kiddos!!!!! (it was also a wonderful place to take a date too… Pre marriage….Hehehehe) does your science center have an IMAX type mega theatre too? Those are extraordinary for educational documentaries. xoxoxoxxoo

    Hay Katherine Marie!!! Your kids would love the Science Centre – very relaxed play space full of interesting goodies to play with!!! Cape Town used to have an Imax Theatre… but years and years ago – I haven’t even thought about it since we had kids… must see if there is still one!!! Hope you all have a special week!!!
