“Loved it!”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Great exhibits and everything was very interactive. I spent more than half the day there and I wish I could have spent longer. Lots of school groups, and unfortunately we didn't make it to the gift shop as it was constantly packed with school kids.

“A great interactive museum for the children”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

We had a great couple of hours with my 3 boys, aged 12, 11 & 7, here in mid-August which happened to be Science week so managed to see a show put on by the National Nuclear Science body which was fabulous. The emphasis seemed to be more on playing, which isn't a bad thing for kids, but felt like it had gone too far down that path compared with other museums I have taken the kids to. The staff were great and in amongst all the historical/political sites around it is a winner. Check out the shows in the theatre as they are brilliant - these scientists in action make it all worth it.

“Lots of fun for kids of all ages”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

We passed an afternoon looking through Questacon. We had been here with the family about 10 years ago and the kids (now young adults) had spent happy school excursions here. Interesting facts, interactive experiences and a fun way to learn a bit more about the world we live in.

“Great fun”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

Yep, yep and yep - just what those other people said. Lots of fun, you couldn't do it all in a day. The free fall exhibit got my heart racing.
