Me and my cousin went to the Sciencentre and we had a blast! Kids and adults have a great time exploring different aspects of science. It makes science so fun...I recommend it to anyone

Visited the Sciencentre today after 2 years away. A combination of rainy weather driving people indoors and a lack of staff on the ticket desk meant - a very long wait to get in. When the supervisor was confronted about the lack of staff her...More

can spend a lot of time here, great for kids I would say not until perhaps age 7 when they can truly understand and make fantastic things.

Being able to engage children and even teenagers with science is a feat that the Science Centre gets right. From testing your strength and even timing your running speed this centre is worth the entry fee. There is plenty of optical illusions to spark curiosity...More

if you haven't been, it is worth the trip at least once. there are some good things to see and do here, and it isn't very expensive. The exhibits are getting tired though and it could benefit from a freshen up.

Fantastic experience for kids of all ages, there are lots of science-based interactive activities that are both fun and educational. I've been with groups of kids on school trips, and the kids have always loved it and rated it as one of their favourite excursions.

This place is amazing, Qld Government are revamping the Science Centre. It’s reopening bigger and better in July 2018.

This is a great place to bring the kids with lots of interactive exhibits. They change regularly too. It is well laid out and family friendly. Take public transport though as parking would be very difficult. I highly recommend the Science Centre.
