About Scienceworks, Melbourne
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.

Scienceworks, Melbourne Reviews
Very entertaining. Well designed and very interactive. Educational without being boring. Lovely playground ,good demonstrations. There are not long waits for things. My kids loved it. Very good value.optional Light shows,lightning show,space shows. Cafe is nice.
I love Scienceworks! In particular, my boyfriend and I have really been enjoying the Planetarium Nights that they are having every Friday until June, that we've already been three times (two sessions in November and one in December)! You have a great night where you watch a film and get to explore what's in the night sky that particular night, with a presenter showing you all the sights and explaining everything, and you just recline and relax in your chair, appreciating the night sky with a glass of wine and some snacks. Definitely my perfect Friday night :)
The place hasn't changed at in since I was there years ago. I would like some change and some adult areas that teach harder science. Maybe it's just cause I'm a science nerd, but I would like more science there. But besides that I had a fun day. A shuttle bus from the station to the centre would be good too.
Great place for young and old to enjoy. It gets busy, but there are always quiet spaces you can find to unwind. Get the membership option if you live nearby - skips queues and know that you have a great option for hot or rainy days.
First time visiting. It was one of our plans while visiting Melbourne. Both my kids 14 and 10 enjoyed the place. I enjoyed it as well. A good place to have both educational input and fun.
