We (adults) went to Questacon in Canberra to see how it compared to other science museums. It exceeding our already hhigh expectations. The exhibits are well presented and informative. It is definitely not like an ordinary museum that is focused on simply looking- rather, it is interactive and entertaining. We especially enjoyed the free fall slide, even though we were... More

We spent an enjoyable 1/2 day at Questacon. Having read the reviews and been told great things, we were not disappointed. The kids loved how interactive everything was and there were lots of staff on hand to answer questions and provide further information. We probably could have spent longer here, but were conscious of the 4 hr parking limit ($10).... More

Me and my partner who are both 21 years old went and we loved it, the general idea of the place is that it's for children but we loved it and I'm sure people of all ages will too. Definitely on the must see list.

Visiting from North West Sydney with my 6yr old daughter, and we both enjoyed it. It's well planned in terms of lay-out. It's interactive and educational. There are plenty of helpful staff around to provide information if needed. It's clean! A nice experience overall.

Spent a few hours at this attraction, there were too many young children when we were there which created queues and lots of noise! Worth a look however.

Quests on is great even for there young at heart couple just as long as you have the patience to mind the kids running around. The spider exhibit was awesome.

We spent a rainy day here and explored all the rooms. Lots of hands on activities for children of all ages. The concerts in the Japanese Theatre were wonderful. Really well done. Educational but funny and engaging at the same time and a welcome rest for the noise of the rest of the building. It does get very busy with... More

Our family thoroughly enjoyed Questacon. We stayed for the day and the kids could have played for longer. As a parent it was fun to play with the kids in a learning setting. Well do to Questacon and their helpful staff. We look forward to our next visit.
