  • Took our young nephews and we had as much fun as they did...so much fun with all the hands on stuff. The staff were all lovely..knowledgeable, friendly & helpful  more »
  • Unlike big city science museums, this place is small enough to let the kids roam freely discovering things on their own. Lots of great interactive exhibitions, and quite good shows too.  more »
  • The learning never stops With so many hands on displays. And the Planetarium was brilliant. Hours of fun for big kids and little kids, and grandparents!  more »

  • Great place to get your science hit! Suitable for all ages in particular children. Wide range of exhibits and shows where the staff are always keen to answer any questions.
  • A great space to entertain and educate the whole family. You can get membership at the SC&P and get access to other places such as science works Melbourne & Questacon in Canberra. Great value and recommended. If you are not local - it is worth a trip to Wollongong!
  • Loved it! Great place to take kids, my 6 year old soaked it all up! The planetarium was fantastic, even for me, and loved the science shows.
  • Excellent value for money. Lots for school age children to do & learn. Only problem was toddlers attending the learning sessions. They are too young to understand & consequently scream, winge & run around. Very distracting for everyone else Also take your own food as by 1.00pm most of the memu on offer was non-existent. Very disappointing.
  • It's a fun outing especially for the kids, lots of hands on activities. The kiosk needs to be open a little longer than it is, and due to its closure time we cut our time short as the kids were hungry.
