The location is good but the inside has been the been the same for years. lots of interesting things but was here once back in the 90s and nothing has changed except the cost. Outside the venue can be seedy after hours as its close to bars, pubs and lots of strip clubs just down the street.

We stayed in Surfers paradise during our Gold coast trip and visited this place on an evening to kill an hour before dinner. To our surprise the collection is so huge and interesting that we spent almost 2.5 hours and couldn't actually finish viewing all the artefacts. I've watched Ripley's believe it or not show many times on the TV... More

Needed to fill in some time so decided to go in and have a look. Bit expensive but expected as its an attraction in a very touristy city. Lots to look at and read, may be a bit boring for little kids but they definitely will like the interactions and hands on activities through-out the venue. I have been to... More

This was interesting for a look with a few fun things to do while in there. Use a voucher from one of the pamphlets handed out around the place and it will end up being a cheap visit.

Took our twin 6 year old grandsons for a visit. Found entrance fee a bit expensive. They were a little bored hi the first exhibit but got a lot more excited with the hands on.

Overall, a little disappointing as "wow" factor is not there for young ones. We have three kids under 10 and there was little to do except read and be shown stuff. The few activities there were good, highlight was a laser zone room where you can do mission impossible.. Kids could have done this for ages but pressure to move... More

Worth a visit. Hands on activities are great. Laser activity was entertaining. There are a few stairs which made it little more difficult to manouvre pram but staff were keen to assist.

Excellent time, A great collection of fascinating objects etc . At the start I thought it was a bit pricey, then I saw the collection and it must of cost a lot to collect all the pieces. Lots to see. Well worth the money!
