Marked as average only due to the fact this is definetly levelled at the 12 years and under, our two teenagers were expecting a little more than was displayed. For those under 12 the interactive exhibits are excellent making learning fun and would eat up 4 hours of a day. Parking must be an issue in the Summer considering we vissited in the off season it was packed - would recommend an ealy vissit to fit opening time or post lunch when school trips would be starting to move out.

If you're in Canberra with kids, go to Questacon! Go even if you're without kids. Well designed with interesting interactive exhibits that won't disappoint.

At over $20 entry we would have liked the exhibits to have been a little updated since we were there over 10 years ago, in each room quite a few were not working or things missing or instructions were not clear. There did not seem a natural flow to the information portrayed, it may have assist in teaching more if the first room was about the creation of the world and the last about what the future holds with gradual teaching in between. The staff were very helpful. The cafe was good value for money but the quality could be improved.

We had a 5 year old and feel he was a little young to get the most out of it but there was an excellent play room for 0-6's which we felt was the highlight of the visit.

Perfect for kids of all ages (and big kids too!). The live rocket show is not to be missed. The staff are lovely and for all the coffee drinkers, it was not too bad either. My children can not wait to make a return trip.

We spent a couple of hours there, with two 4-y-os. They had a lot of fun touching and trying things. Especially the thermal camera. Will come back!
