I took my 2 boys to the Science Centre today, but half of it was closed due to a significant new exhibit being implemented. There was a very good dinosaur display, and the boys spend quite a lot of time in the science area. The only disappointment was that we booked the tickets on the 'spur of the moment' over... More

Great to test everything out, we had a company event here and it was a nice day out for all. We had food and drinks afterwards, I like the inventions displayed and would take the kids here again for sure.

Very interesting and interactive. Plenty for kids to do with only a short wait for turns. Busy on school hols. Had to queue for about 15 mins to buy tickets there so if you can pre-purchase before you get there.

great place for children of all ages ... interactive exhibits and a lot of interesting sights... there is a wonderful sense of excitement for science lovers young and old... when we were there, there was many school tour groups but this only improved the experience as there was a hum of excitement with each display they viewed...

We had three days in the City and knew at least one of those days would be raining so spent a good part of it at the Sciencentre & Museum. I took my kids there probably 5 years ago and most of it seems to be the same, they still enjoyed it though at 11 & 13. We also did... More

I am a PhD graduate (Science). I remember coming here as a child and loving the science center. Years later and I still do love it, although I am disappointed to find that most of the exhibits are the same as when I was a child. As an adult, some advice: don't come here during school holidays unless you enjoy... More

Firstly, at $14.50 for adults, we feel the price should be lower given it is definitely more suited to kids and kids can't go without at least one adult. Secondly, it was disappointing even for adults like us who thoroughly enjoy normal kids attractions and exhibits. Everything felt old, outdated, and some of the limited exhibits didn't work. Normally, an... More

We visited the Sciencentre yesterday. Initially we visited to hide from the rain but then we had a fun day. We explored the various free exhibitions and then paid to go to the dinosaur exhibition, Dinosaur Discovery: Lost Creatures of the Cretaceous. It cost $15 and we spent a good hour in there reading the signs, playing with the ipads... More
