Our family of 5 spent a few hours here, our children aged 6, 11 & 12 loved most of what was on offer. With each floor brining a different exciting subject it kept each of our children engaged. There was plenty of hands on fun to be had for all ages.

I went here years ago when I was at school and I remember it being super awesome. This time it was even better as technology has changed and developed so much, and it has kept up. My two kids loved it. So many interactive, visually stunning and educational displays, exhibits and demonstrations. Staff were excellent at engaging the kids. The... More

This a great place to spend a few hours. Very educational for kids and adults alike. Love all the hands on displays. If you love science, you'll love Questacon.

Was proud to showcase Questacon to our visiting Canadian friends. A great place with something for everyone from toddlers to young kids and teenagers, Mums Dads and grandparents!

I have been to Questacon many times with my four grandchildren. So much for kids to see and interact with. One of our favourite places and not costly if you get an annual pass. Many great memories!

Questacon is always a fun experience for a big kid at heart. I also really enjoyed the spider display.

If your young, young at heart, open to learning in a fun way then spending a couple of hours is certainly something I enjoy doing at least once a year and whenever interstate or overseas friends drop-in.

Great for kids. Lots of hands on activities. Play areas to let the kids burn energy. Science shows and rotating exhibits keeps things fresh

What can I say, this place was making science fun and cool way before the Big Bang Theory. Sadly I have never seen Penny or Sheldon there but there are a =n army of enthuses tic staff who seem to love nothing more than sharing their love and passion for all things science. The many floor of the centre house... More

Questacon is a brilliant place for adults and kids. It has so much packed inside, you'd need minimum a whole day to see SOME of it... We saw the fantastic spider exhibition, and My daughter dared to even do the freefall, she is so tiny yet so brave... The science experiments and puzzles are all great. The staff are helpful...
