  • Kids loved it. Many fun interactive things to do. Planetarium was excellent and staff were friendly. Only issue was it seemed a little dated and a few things didn't work but nonetheless would go back.
  • A great time for kids and adults alike. Lots of fun activities for all ages - and you might even learn something...
  • Educational and informative. So much fun for the whole family
  • Just in case you think that your inner child does not need stimulating(and I mean more than just doing the vertical slide twice in a row!) this is the MUST SEE venue when in town. Just across the road from the Bendigo Railway Station. This has a bit of everything: I definitely like the 'vortex' simulator(think "disaster movies"). Also enthralled with the 'echo tunnel'. Lots of displays(hands-on fortunately!) demonstrating those essential principles of science that we mortals take for granted every day. I recommend this for ages: 3 to 90 years of age. Will be looking forward to the improvements that are getting underway. Keep up the good work team!
  • I really love the planetarium, walking through the Tardis doors... it is great!
