  • There are a good variety of interactive exhibits, good for all ages - even my 3yr old and 1yr old enjoyed our visit! Some special exhibits which are occasionally set up are at additional cost to the entrance, and take up some of the space of normal exhibits, but there is still plenty to see on such days even without going to the special exhibit. Great way to spend the morning/afternoon - and with under 4's free, it's also quite affordable!
  • Great facility for students from primary school all the way through to highschool. Adults are welcome as well. If you or a child needs career counseling or access to study centre and computers, I highly recommend this facility. It's a really good educational facility and institution for counselling and psychometric testing.
