We thought we would only be here to see the Hadron Collider but spent hours walking around the different areas. our kids 16, 14, andd 12 loved it here and to be out of the brisbane heat was great. Probably only down side the cafe was too small, i only wanted to get a coffee and didn't want to queue... More

My wife and I visited the museum and enjoyed ourselves. We enjoyed the exhibition on the large hadron collider. We got tickets for the exhibition and Science centre. Had a fun day. Great for kids and adults.

This was such a disappointment, to actually pay for this and have it time specific was pretty poor. The video was an absolute waste of 15minutes that I will never get back. Just as well the rest of the museum had something to offer. I took my two teenage boys who are right into Physics, and they found the Hadron... More

This is without doubt the least impressive museum exhibit I have ever had the misfortune to pay to see, and that includes several I have been to in poverty stricken countries in which the display text was not in English. The introductory video is a spectacular tour de farce. Clearly scripted by some film-school graduate fool with no idea about... More

We hadn't been here in a long time, so I am not sure when the make-over took place, but it is absolutely wonderful. Came here often when our children were growing up and now went with the grandchildren. A lot of the actual displays are still the same, but so much better exhibited and with lots of interesting gadgets, so... More

We had not been to the museum since my kids were little. We took 16 preschool students for a day trip. WOW it was fantastic. I was like a kid in a lolly shop. Relics. Birds. Could have spent 2 days looking at everything. Need at least a day to see all. Well worth it for the family.

To escape the heat we paid this free museum a visit. The exhibitions were modern, informative and very well presented. It was refreshing to be home from Vietnam where our Museums present scientific based information versus their prophaganda driven rubbish.

If you have children the museum is a must. So much see and learn without them even knowing that they are. All the staff we come in contact with were just so friendly and willing to help you with anything.

At our last day of a 3.5 weeks stay we visited this museum. We did see everything we met and didn't met. A great, free, museum for all ages. Very worth to spend a morning or afternoon!
