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.

  • so much to see and do. My son loved it. we were there 9.30 to 5 pm and he didn't stop for lunch! He went on the slide 5 times - little line up and more thrilling than any other slide he has been on. 
  • I waent to Questoacon and i hated it i dont do science im 11 btw
  • this place is fantastic not only for kids. so many interactive exhibits bit difficult to find if you are looking for some specific exhibit. there are lots of instructors on the floor ready to answer your questions. they are highly knowledgeable and polite. must go for kids. And for not-so kids. BE CAREFUL WITH THE GRAVITY FALL BY THE WAY!!!
  • As a visitor from the US I was highly impressed by this interactive science museum which really caters to kids, while being fun and educational. We spent the entire day and did not finish everything. My kids had a lot of fun and did not even realize that they were learning!. Highly recommend!
  • So much fun! We went with a 10 month old and two 3 year old boys. Bubs had fun in some of the rooms, the older boys loved touching everything and learned lots. Everything is so interactive and just a lot of fun. Great kids area where we spent a lot of time, good change room and feeding facilities too. Will come again next time we are in Canberra.
  • Get yourself an annual pass for terrific value! Mini Q is fantastic for preschoolers, the upstairs rooms take ages to fully explore, and the members lounge includes bottomless Milo. Members get discounts at the cafe and shop, though you might want to go across to the Library for better coffee.
