“Great for the family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

Had a great time at Sciencworks. Very interactive, kids loved the carnival display and the City at the end. Something for everyone and can't wait to go back. Reasonably priced, only comment is the cafe food could be improved.
Staff very friendly and helpful

“A Childrens' Paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

Our family has a membership to this attraction and visit it several times a year. They quite often change exhibitions We went along and were impressed that with everything going on outside the classroom a school class were listening to a lecture from one of the staff and didn't appear distracted by the noise from the children outside. Interactivity for adults and children was enjoyed by all.

“Science with a bang”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

My boyfriend and I went here on the last day of our trip in Melbourne in 2011. We found it a lot of fun and really enjoyed the lightning show..Planetarium was a bit disappointing but still interesting. Easy to get to and worth the visit.
