Our third visit didn't disappoint. Despite being very busy, we still enjoyed it. The under 5 area was full this visit which really was fortunate as we never seem to give ourselves enough time! Allocate a full day, take a break there for lunch in the cafe and experience it all. Better still get a year pass and come back!

Good for for adults aswell but not enough staff/slack parents letting mongrel bred kids run amok and steal stuff/move things/touch everything ruined the time we had there. Free fall slide and the hockey were highlights.

I was babysitting two of my friends' kids and took them here. We spent a good 3 hours here (probably would have spent more if they were a little older) and we all loved it. They learnt a lot, played a lot and fell asleep on the way home. That's a win in my books! It is a little pricey... More

Although not too big, it is very well manage. The museum staffs are very nice, engaging us in various experiments. A must visit if you go to Canberra.

My partner loves all things science and was very excited to visit. We spent a good 3 hours in the museum, partially because we enjoyed all the interactive parts but also trying to dodge a particularly unruly group of school kids. The volunteers are spectacular, engaging and knowledgeable. Once the school group passed we found it to be a lot... More

We live in Canberra and have for the last three years bought family passes for our children and grandchildren . The grandchildren love going to Question. Displays are changed in a regular basis yet the old favourites are retained. I must say I enjoy some of the displays as much as the grandchildren even when it entails playing the voice... More
