Great fun anyone! Loved playing with everything even when you had to wait for the little kids to finish so you could get your turn! They said that half the place was closed but it was still such good fun, you didn't even notice.

The thing I love about the Sciencentre is how hands-on it is, there's so much to play with you actually forget you're learning a whole lot of great stuff, it doesn't matter how young or old you are it's just so much fun and you don't have to be a science nerd to enjoy it. It's also very reasonably priced.

A great place for exploring minds, young and old alike. Heaps of interactive displays. If you have someone who wants to know the answer to the question Why is it so? This is the place to go!

The Sciencentre plus a little stroll through the museum is always a fun day out. I feel the sciencentre has a good amount of activities to do, definitely for the kids. It also has a really great gift shop.

I visited the Sciencentre with mum and sister in the Easter school holidays. We are all adults but were looking for something to do on a rainy day and we're so glad we went. We weren't expecting much, knowing it's targeted at kids but the activities kept us entertained for a couple of hours and we even learnt a few... More

Loved this attraction, its moderately priced and there is plenty to do when mixed with the Queensland Museum next door. Lots of interesting and relevant things for smaller children which was nice. Staff were friendly and helpful.

Recently visited with a friend for the first time in 2 years. They always have a new attraction on - last time it was a murder mystery, this time it was visions of the future. Lots of interativity here, fun for all ages!

One, to keep the kids entertained on a rare rainy day. Two, 'coz primary-age kids cannot get enough of this hands-on stuff! Also spied a few adults thoroughly enjoying themselves. Top marks to staff for the work involved in set up and maintenance.
