This is a wonderful place to visit, I've taken my grandchildren aged 3 to 10 years of age and they have all loved it. I'm not young and I love it! I can't recommend it highly enough.

I came here as a kid with my school and have been back with a friends child and it's honestly the coolest place. Even as an adult I found it so fun. It takes interactive to a new level! And you learn so much about all different kinds of sciences. An absolute must visit for kids of all ages (and... More

Such a fun way to learn here. Heaps of hands on activities to keep everyone interested. We had a 2 and 4 year old with us who loved the 0 to 6 room with water, construction, balancing and many other activities. The earthquake simulation and talk was also good and the fellow doing it tailored it to the younger audience.... More

Miserable day in Canberra & teenage son recommended us to go here. So glad we did. This place has so much inter-activity - great for kids who just have to touch everything! Find out how things work. Pleasant, happy staff show you some basic science experiments, happy kids= happy parents. Gift shop at end good for xmas presents!

This is an amazing facility for the young, and young at heart. My 18 month old absolutely loved the 0-6 year old area, which encouraged creative play, water activities, and learning about space. The cafeteria is quite good, offering more than just friend food and sandwiches (these are available too).

A great way to get kids interested in science, inquiry and investigation. The attractions are set up very well to allow for maximum engagement, and EVERYTHING is interesting! We left exhausted after spending many hours trying out everything. We had to read/explain some of the concepts to the kids but even without the explanations, they still found the activities and...
