On a rainy day, Melbourne could offer a tourist no better refuge, especially if they’ve brought children along. Three permanent exhibits and various temporary ones keep this museum a fresh experience no matter how many times you return. Children are encouraged to learn about the functions of a city, the science behind the movement of their own bodies, and the possible evolution of life, science and technology over carious industries like medicine, sound, transport, etc…. all of this in a highly interactive and hands on experience that’ll keep them thinking for a time to come. And that’s just the permanent exhibitions… there’s no telling what the temporary exhibitions will do.

Very good science museum. I love the little kids day in special events held on the first Monday every month for kids between 0 to 5. It's a fun place to explore. The planetarium is amazing. The special zone for kids to play is interactive. Worth becoming a museum member.
While it's located within an industrial area, the museum itself is a well maintained place. It had lots of interactive exhibits that engages young minds and sparks interest in science. This is a place to be for families with young kids. Pretty fun for adults too.
Been there with my close friend. The museum live show "A ticket to universe" is amazing and filled with a funny yet informative narration. There is also a lot of games and science works which are great to be played. Superb!
A museum of very different kind, emphasising on implementation of many scientific concepts and evolution through easy display. My kids love it and seems like every other kids did the same. Added bonus was the planetarium with a great show on Universe. There are 3 different kinds of show depending on the time of the day you visit. Highly recommended for kids and adults likewise.
Brought 2 kids there. $15 entrance fee. There were a bunch of sch kids on a trip. :) very interactive displays and information. Well done! Will go again on another trip
