“Old and dingy - needs an update”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

Pretty old and dingy displays, and I thought the children's area was poorly managed. I did not see any staff up there so there was no one (aside from neglectful parents) there to ensure the children were safely 'playing'.

“Great fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

I love the array of events and activities throughout any given year at this museum. I try to visit each time I'm in Melbourne.
The Wallace & Gromit activities were creative, good fun and educational. At any time, it's worth a visit - with adults or kids.

“Take the Grandchildren”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

This is a great place to spend a day with the grandchildren. It will easily fill in their day with lots of activity and hands-on experiments and fun things to do.. By the way you wil also enjoy it too. If you are a pensioner you get in for free which makes the day even better. There is parking out the front.
