* PERMANENTLY CLOSED * As of 9 September 2017. It was a fun adventure with lots of props and costumes from the show, very interactive. Great fun, regardless of whether or not you dressed as your favourite characters. The building lease was only for 5 years, from 2012-17. Wonder what the city will use it for next.
Love the exhibits and the interactive experience. But what lets it down is signs like 'Don't Touch' placed on top of objects people want to take photos of. Also the partition walls are only 3/4 height of some of the objects so not great for photos either as spoils the shot. N.B. THIS PLACE IS NOW CLOSED.
There's nothing quite like walking into the control room of The TARDIS and they even managed to make it bigger on the inside (sort of). A nice little interactive journey and then a brilliant array of sets, props and costumes.
Why oh why oh why did they close this exhibition? It was great fun and the kids loved getting close to genuine Dr Who memorabilia from both the new and old versions. The experience apt was great, and the gift shop had loads of great stuff.
Amazing. There is an interactive exhibit that is accompanied by a video stream of The Doctor. He interacts with the visitors. The staff are fantastic and clearly enjoy their jobs. The gift shop was a little bit bare. It is a brilliant day out and is child friendly. It isn't just a fun day for kids though. There is plenty there for the adults to enjoy.
Such a shame it's now closed, my son and I (both big Dr Who fans) absolutely loved our visit, really glad we went when we did!
My son loved this. Was a good day out and reasonably priced. Very interactive for kids and there was alot to look at in the museum
I absolutely loved the Doctor Who Experience, I only went twice, but the things they had there were amazing and there was always something new along with the same core stuff. I particularly loved the extensive costume gallery they had on the upper floor the last time I went (at the start of last summer), and wish I'd been able to see the series 10 stuff. I hope they reopen it somewhere because it'll be a crying shame if that is the end of it forever. I also got to fly the TARDIS during the interactive experience the second time I went (because it was a Thursday afternoon still technically during term time, but my 16 year old brother and I had finished our respective school and uni years, so our dad got the day off and could take us) which was amazing.
Went with family members aged between 6 and 63 and everyone had a fabulous time. We walked through an exciting and sometimes scary quest in time and space, encountering daleks, weeping angels, and even the doctor himself, then spent time in the very extensive exhibition of iconic props and costume spanning all the series from the very beginning to the present day. As the one at the top end of the age range, I saw it as a treat for the younger ones and didn't expect to enjoy it much myself, but it was so well done that I surprised myself by loving every minute, and I'd go again tomorrow if I could. A magical and memorable afternoon out for all concerned.
The staff really take this place to a whole other level. Our tour guide was fantastic despite being stuck with a group of 8 shy adults, 4 of which couldn't seem to speak English. She still made the experience as fun and interactive for all of us which such a positive attitude that I want whatever she had for breakfast that morning! I've been wanting to come here for a long time and was not disappointed in the slightest
