Great hands on experience, grandson said it was the best thing he did whilst in Canberra, parking can be a little difficult.

Very engaging experience for both children and parents alike - very much focused on the sciences with lots of hands on opportunities - recommended highly particularly for families

We found this place large and overwhelming with a 5 year old and 6 year old. However if you are not too ambitious and attend a few of the presentations the visit is worthwhile. It is a bit hard for the primary kids to fully appreciate all the science being offered however a few bits at a time may do the job of turning them into scientists!

If you can't find something here to attract your interest, check your own pulse. This place is like walking onto the set of Julius Sumner Miller's TV show, except that it's all in colour.
