Great educational and fun place for kids and adults, always something fun and interesting happening for all age groups. Worth a visit and there are passes available if you want to visit regularly.

Enjoyable museum with many 'hands on' exhibits and staff who get involved and tell you useful information about exhibits. Not on the same scale as the Science Museum hence the title of this review but still interesting albeit you have to pay quite a high price to get in!

Question is a great hands-on experience for Primary School and Junior High School kids. The giant drop slide is scary - but worth doing! I think the picket price is too expensive. The shop had lots of great toys at reasonable prices. If you take your kids along - they will love you for it.

The kids dont get all the fun. Adults have to get in play as well. Lots of intriguing and fun sciencey things to mess around on, even better doing it with young children.

We spent two hours here on a Sunday morning. We arrived early at ten and so the kids pretty much had the place to themselves, no queues and plenty of space to check all the wonderful exhibits out.

We had not been to Questacon since we were children and on a recent visit to the nations capital we took our kids to visit. It is just amazing, you could spend days there and still learn new things. The kids play area was a particular hit for my 4 year old and we all loved the insect show. Everyone... More
