No matter how many times we have visited Questacon, the kids always bring us back to see the ever-changing interactive exhibits. Good for 3-4 hours of fun filled and interesting science that our 5 and 9 yo's (and us) love. Well worth the time and admission price.😀 We'll be back ...

Came here with my friends on the first Saturday of May. It was great as it was half price day. There were heaps of things to look and and learn about! Although it's a fun quirky place I also learnt heaps of things! Next time I come to Canberra I will be coming here! Thanks for the Great time !

What a blast! And that was just in the gallery with Riley & Patrick doing the science experiments. So many things to do. Can easily spend a whole day here and we will certainly be returning to Questacon next time we visit Canberra.

We enjoyed our time at Questacon, but expected it to be an "all day" thing, rather than a half-day thing. We spent half a day there with our 11 and 9 year olds. They loved it.
