Very busy!! Barely got near or had a go at anything. I would definitely recommend it more for the older kids not too much to do for the younger kids.

Visited questacon with two 6-7 years old girls. Had fun and enjoyed time I spend there. A lot to do and to see, and learned something new even myself. Theatre show was funny and girls loved it! Cafe wasn’t very good. Overall highly recommend!

Scienceworks in Melbourne x 10! This place has done it right. The venue is airy and spacious yet filled with so many amazing things to keep kids entertained and educated. Don't miss the 'free fall' for older kids!
