Create an itinerary including Questacon
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. Before you head to Canberra, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Canberra trip itinerary builder tool, to make sure you see all that Canberra has to offer, including Questacon.

  • I really wanted to revisit this place again after my botched visit in primary school I’m glad I got to do it in my own time It was great fun
  • Questacon has always been one of my favourite places to visit in Canberra. However, there have been very few updates over the years. Given the entry fees, it's starting to look tired.
  • Very well organised and presented for the pandemic. Staff very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Our family comes here at least once every year and my boy really enjoys it.
  • Really enjoyed the Mars Exhibit with my 5 year old. Very impressed by the staff who put this on and we had a great time. Always a great time at Questacon even in the current COVID world where the rest of the centre is not open as usual.
  • If you prefer the usual hands on Questacon experience, do not go to Questacon while they are only offering no touch tours only. We've been many times in the past and absolutely loved exploring for 5-6hours. But my goodness - I struggled keeping my little ones engaged today. Sorry Questacon - but we won't be back till the old Questacon is back.
