Questacon, Canberra

Australia might be best known for its exotic wildlife and beautiful landscapes, but you can explore its more scientific and technological side at Questacon. More than 200 interactive exhibits show you physics, chemistry, and engineering in action. Discover how a whirlwind of air and mist make things move at the Jellyfish Vortex. Test your response to visual stimuli and your hand-eye coordination at Batak. Although the museum aims most of its exhibits at kids, it entertains and educates visitors of all ages.

  • Just amazing!!! Interesting experience with science. The staff were very friendly & informative. It worth every penny. If you're around Canberra, you should visit Questacon. No drink or food allowed inside. Lockers are available at a small fee. Prepare to spend a good 3 hours. If you wish to buy souvenir at the shop, better be there 30 minutes before they closed. Because they close before 5pm. Parking at weekend is free. There's free refill spot for drinking water outside. If you dare, try the jump 😁
  • It is a great place to go in the holidays! It has a massive drop slide, a cage of lightning, a kids area, a building workshop and countless science fun rooms. I would definitely recommend looking in the gift shop. Some really cute memos can be bought there! Definitely go! The minor cost is worth a day of fun for the whole family!
