“Brilliant fun for big and little kids”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

Scienceworks is great for an afternoon/while day outing. There are loads of interactive things to play with, it is very child friendly and there is a lovely outdoor space.

Fabulous value and even better if you join Museums Vic for an annual pass.

“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.
