We were visiting Melbourne to attend AO and had few free days with us. The science work is a decent place for adults (great place if you have kids with you). With kids, one can plan a full day outing. What interested us is the...More

Sadly nitty gritty super city is gone and the upstairs area is a waste of space. The 0-5 area is pathetic. The “upgrade” was a failure. My 5 year old and teen were both bored. I heard a family on their way out talk about...More

As always Scienceworks doesn't fail to deliver-all exhibitions top notch and the VR experience was well worth the extra $

Was a fun free activity for the kids, adults cheap as well. Kids had lots to.do and loved the sports part of scienceworks. Planetarium show was good, and the stat gazing at the end was good, think it should be longer and more in depth....More

If you plan to go make sure you book the additional $8 “lightning” show. It shows only twice a day.... Amazing viewing of simulated lightning from a 6 Million volt Tesla coil. Wow.... However, Scienceworks is getting a little dated in its core offer to...More
