  • Nearly skipped this place and would have missed one of the most fun museums in Australia, nay, the world. Not at all what I was expecting. Absolutely top notch. Wife and kids entirely agreed. Full of hands-on exhibits and old world nostalgia. Cannot recommend this place enough. We all wished we had allowed a full day just for this museum.
