  • We visited with a 2 year old and almost 1 year old (crawling). They both had the best time ever! Think Questacon but for younger kids - I would think the target group is 3-6. At first I thought it...

  • In town for the school holidays and someone recommended this place to take my children. Reminds me of Lets Play at Old Parliament House but 1000x bigger and better! My children had a ball and there were so many things to do. I will 100% be purchasing a membership once we make the move here. Also, shout out to the staff member working at the arts and crafts on 19/4/22 at around 2pm. I didn't catch her name but she was wearing glasses. She was awesome and really interacted with all the kids doing crafts (unlike her co-worker). Its people like her that make places like this great!
  • What an excellent place to bring your little ones! Affordable and educational. All the staff were wonderful and attentive! Story time, art and craft and even a science show presentation! Best interactive museum! There is something for all ages. 3 hour session goes by very quickly!
