  • This was a very interesting, educational and well designed museum, well worth a visit. Historically very important to Canarvon and Australia.  more »
  • Kids loved it here and so did we. A surprise in our trip north. The staff are great and we had to be dragged away from the experiment area. Thank you.  more »
  • We were in town for work and went the museum out of general curiosity -- and it was excellent. Lots of great history from the Apollo missions when the location was a NASA tracking station, and there's...  more »

  • Loved the fact that kids could get hands-on almost everywhere. They aren't precious about all the old equipment and kids just loved pushing every button they could see! Also, the entry fee is very reasonable so we felt like we got great value for money.
  • An amazing place, not just for science geeks!! Being a former science teacher, i didn't realise the detailed involvement that Australia had, let alone this small country town in WA, in the various NASA space missions. Such an important piece of our science and technology history. A credit to all the volunteers that help run this museum.
  • If you or your kids are into space and or history then this museum is an absolute must on your travels. There have been 3 stages added to the museum - the first is a lot of memorabilia and information about Carnarvon's role in the first moon mission. The second is more about exhibits and the third is more of a fun/SciTech style exploration centre. We spent a lot of time here looking around and everyone had a great time. You can experience the lunar module as the astronauts did as well as learn how important this station was in the 1969 Mercury mission. The volunteer staff are super friendly - none more so than Buzz their giant adopted cat that greets you on the front counter. Will visit again one day!
  • Very interesting, though a lot of reading is expected to get the full experience so maybe not for small kids. But they do have small videos and theater. Awesome staff!
  • Great journey through the true history of space exploring from Carnarvon Space Station. First Moon landing was partly served alive from here. Interesting and fascinating story of early Spaceloop with exhibits, tools, facts & equipment from Stations activity as the only one outside of USA. Absolute worth visiting.
