Now more modernised with animitronics and more interactive attractions this suits the younger audience and the more inquisitive minds who want to read and explore exhibits word-for-word.

Some really interesting stuff, only gripe is the cost. $60 odd dollars for 1 adult, 14 year old and 10 year old is a bit steep I feel. Still enjoyed it though

Bit of fun for kids. Interesting things to look at. I always think it smells weird inside though! It's also quite expensive for what it offers.

It opens 10am and closes 10pm approx. I highly recommend visiting this attraction when on the Coast, Its in... More
