Sadly due to COVID you can only stay here for 2 hours with a time limit in each room but the staff are awesome as well as the exhibits. We went here to take us back to our primary school excursion...
Having visited a number of science museum both locally and overseas, the Questacon ranks very highly for us. We are here with our 7 year old son and we love how interactive the displays are.
“Fun for all!!”
You now have to book online for a 2 hour visit - quite easy. Turn up at the selected hour and you go through the different areas as a group. Just arriving there is fun - lots of fun you can play...
