It is amazing how weird we are as humans. Fascinating displays and articles. Fun way to spend an hour with the family. Staff were all very friendly.

Well located to get children to be occupied while mum can have a shopping break. The kids can see something different and learn lots of facts, different cultures and some scientific stuff. Nice laser room challenge. Worth a visit. AUD80 for family ticket.

Occasionally Groupon has very good deals on this. I purchased it through Groupon the last time and it was definitely worth it .

Yes, we have an elevator especially for wheelchair access, and the attraction is flat all the way through. Our friendly staff will take you to the elevator and into the show.
