My family (2boys, age 5 and 8) absolutely loved the new spy attraction at the Brisbane sciencecentre. Both my husband and I also had a ball solving the great stolen microchip mystery. Some of the activities included: finding the hidden surveillance cameras and microphones, changing your appearance for a new passport picture, using a voice altering device, finding clues in... More

I guess I should've researched the museum in more depth before I visited! The interactive displays are aimed at children in the 3 to 12 years range and certainly not the place for a solo adult to spend any time in. Great for children, absolutely nothing remotely interesting or scientific for adults. Disappointing experience as I was expecting something more... More

This was a great. Place to take my 3 year old Grandson. He loved exploring, touching objects and throwing the tennis ball, which he's not allowed to do at home in a unit

+ Great mix of physical and mental challenges + Friendly staff + Fun hands-on displays + Great opportunity to socialise for kids - Can get a bit crowded during school holidays and the wait for displays can stretch, but as expected.

We had visited the museum many times but only recently discovered the science centre. What an amazing hands on display. Enjoyed by adults and children. Educational Fun for everyone.

We have been spoiled visiting the best hands on science centre ever recently so coming here was a bit of let down. Half of the exhibits were closed for an upgrade...but the admission price was reduced and we were warned of these. All good. There was enough to keep two kids busy for a couple of hours, including a science... More

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!
