We did not have time to visit the Science Centre, so chose to go to one show at the Planetarium, entitled Astronauts. To be honest, it was a bit of a disappointment. The projection equipment in the centre of the the circular auditorium was up high and was quite intrusive. The seats were old and it's a good thing the... More

The kids enjoyed the science museum. Lots of things to touch and play with. They have stroller that are free of charge so that was nice! Parking was $3 an hour. Admission was pretty expensive but not as bad as I imagined. The show at the planetarium was great. Not to short and not to long. Perfect length for my... More

You don't have only come here once because they always have different shows and it is truly amazing and interesting to watch the stars and planets.

The planetarium was an awesome-although abruptly ending-show. There was lots to see, but I still think-@ $25 pp to see all 3 sections- it was expensive.

The science gallery is filled with all hands on activities. Nothing has changed since our last visit so it was disappointing. They need to bring in some new activities

We went to the science gallery with our 5 yr old grandson. This is such a great and interactive place for kids. So many interesting things they can do and it was fun for us to.

Being a science student, i was keen to learn some thing, and also tried out my concepts in the Science Gallery, and beleive me, there's enough science and scientific principles, all squeezed into few hundred square meters. !!

I remember going to the Science Gallery as a kid and loving it because as a child there seemed to be so much to do and see. As an adult 20 yrs later, in terms of exhibits, not much has changed. They've taken out a few exhibits and added a few new ones, but there seems to be less in... More

We took our 6 and 8 year old grandchildren and had a wonderful experience. A lot of hands on fun and planetarium shows were very well done. Highly recommend this day at the museum
