Well set out with amazing hands on and interactive displays. Very engaging for old and young scientists. Friendly and informative staff. Loved the robots.
“Kids loved it”
Engaging place for kids & adults. Very well run & sanitised. Plenty to see. I went through this place a couple of decades ago and it was bedlam with people everywhere, now it is nice & peaceful...
“Best attraction for kids in Canberra”
