Questacon – The National Science and Technology Centre

For hands-on fun with an educational twist you can’t go past Questacon – The National Science and Technology Centre, located on the shores of Canberra’s Lake Burley Griffin. At Questacon you can free-fall down a six metre slide, experience an earthquake or challenge a robot to a game of air hockey.

Little scientists will love Mini Q, a custom-built gallery just for 0-6 year olds, and no visit is complete without watching (or even starring in!) a Spectacular Science Show.

This a great place to spend a few hours. Very educational for kids and adults alike. Love all the hands on displays. If you love science, you'll love Questacon.

Great fun and awesome learning experience for kids

Tripadvisor rating Reviewed on

I have been to Questacon many times with my four grandchildren. So much for kids to see and interact with. One of our favourite places and not costly if you get an annual pass. Many great memories!
