We were at the Sciencentre in Brisbane at the end of June as part of our time in Brisbane. It was pretty cool overall, shares space with the Queensland Museum which we enjoyed (DINOSAURS!!!!) so since we were there and we enjoy science we check out the Sciencentre as well. At this stage in our lives it is still pretty... More

We enjoy going to the science centre but the when you go as often as my son and I do it becomes a little boring. I think the exhibitions change twice a year which not quite enough for us We are members of the Museum.

I took my two toddlers aged 4 and 2 here and they liked touching and learning about different things. Its interactive and a fun adventure for the young kids as well as a good excuse for the big kids at heart to have fun too! You never stop learning!

Incredible way to spend a rainy day with kids. The activities were brilliant and very age appropriate. They could work them out by themselves and feel really pleased. You could work on some together as a team which was great fun. The running speed trial kept my daughter (6) busy for an hour and she made some new friends. Absolutely... More

Could not believe that we could spend 2 hours here with a toddler and none of us were bored! Children and adults of all ages were enjoying this hands on experience - some using quite a lot of energy! Would definitely do this again,

I think they charge to much for the science center as most exhibits are the same and every now and again they add a special exhibit. It is very good and entertaining for primary aged children as there is a lot they can interact with
