Cape Town Science Centre

Museum in East City, District Six, Woodstock & Observatory

Occupying a rare example of the work of modernist architect Max Policansky, this is a great place to bring kids for attractions such as the giant gyroscope (R5) and tons of Lego. There's also a replica of the Soyuz capsule that returned South African tech billionaire Mark Shuttleworth to earth after his trip to the International Space Station.
