“Interactive exhibits, great gift shop”
Reviewed May 14, 2012

Although it looks small from the outside, this 2-level museum is packed with fun and informative exhibits. I spent a good 2 hours wandering around, and another half hour in the gift shop. The shop has a great range of toys and gadgets for young and old alike, with international brands at good value. The staff were engaging, bright and friendly throughout my visit.

“Great indoor fun for all ages!”
Reviewed March 30, 2012

A Wollongong institution! Great indoor fun for the whole family, especially on a wet day.

Make sure you don't try to pay for your parking, it is free if you take your ticket into the front desk.

If you have very young kids, it is probably best to get there earlier on in the day as the first few shows are more geared more towards little ones. The planetarium is excellent - the kids loved seeing the stars and pretending it was night time. There are shows on every day on weekends and during the holidays, but I would recommend calling the Centre on weekdays to check what is on.

Some exhibits are a bit rough around the edges, but that is all part of the charm!
