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

  • Beautiful place and offers good attraction for the family. The cinema dome is amazing, definitely worth checking. I’ve done a membership as it’s a better value for money. They also have a great kids playground to keep them busy. A better cafeteria would be great as the food offered is quite poor in selection and didn’t make a good impression on me.

  • My 16 month old loved the build and play area, spent a good hour in there using up all her energy! I found the rest of the place a little lacking, might be better for children a little older than my daughter. I felt as though there was some work happening upstairs so possibly more exhibits to keep an eye out for. A pleasant morning spent there, and would try to go back again when bubs is a bit older.

  • More than me, the kids liked it very much. Lots of exhibits with and good information on each with historic breakthrough events and timelines presented in various forms, from posters to audio visuals to interactive displays. There's a build and play area for younger kids to keep them engaged. There's an outdoor play area with some interesting vehicles and other scientific exhibits too. All in all, its educational. Worth a trip with the kids, or just by oneself in order to learn about basic inventions and their evolution up to the present day.

  • Great place to bring family. Can be a little crowded but that is testament to its quality. It has got a lot more interactive of late as well and this is great for the 4+ kids but still interactive enough for the 2+ crowd. Some exhibitions are aging now and need updating. The sport one is not a patch on MCG in terms of cleanliness and accuracy but still good.

  • An absolutely wonderful place to spend the day with the kids. Super informative and educational for adults and kids. The sports section is heaps of fun. Highly recommend going into the Tesla electricity exhibition, really cool!
