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 - Write a Review

  • A great place for kids to learn and enjoy... Their Lightning Room and Planetarium are both worth visiting. Scienceworks does get very busy on weekends so do go early in the day. There's a cafe and plenty of room outside in the courtyard for those wanting lunch or a picnic - and there's also a couple of outdoor playgrounds for the kids in the internal courtyard area.

  • Great place to learn science. Amazing robots display. The kids love designing their own environmental-friendly cars and try many more activities. Worth to go there few times to see all. It's not easy to find a parking space in holidays though.

  • Great day out. Huge science centre, probably more than you can cover in a single outing. Live shows are great, with lots of call ups for kids in the audience to get involved. Massive outdoor area with play equipment and the heritage pump station is nicely preserved.

  • A really good day out with the family. Lots to do, and lots to see. Be mindful that there is the general exhibition and then there’s the special shows (that are charged separately) - these are booked sessions so need some careful planning.

  • Great fun Despite it being busy you could easily move about and get to participate in everything. 2hrs was perfect to do ground floor with a 4yr old. My only complaint is that the toilets were disgusting. They are renovating however so hopefully they will improve on this.
