    Fairly large museum with changing exhibitions located in the old Powerhouse. Worth checking what’s on ahead of time.

    They've really done a great job revamping and living up to its new title of Applies Sciences. Part Questacon, part science museum, part art and history museum.

    Aussie tech museum build by techs brought by Britain, US, Japan and USSR. Does not worth to visit if u are 15 years old and older. Most of things have nothing about technology at all.

    Easily spend 3-4 hours at the museum. Plenty of cool exhibits that even adults would find interesting

    Fantastic museum of science and design. Needs a bit of brushing up (will tell you about that) but some great stuff here.

    You have to buy the tickets online as they do not have the ticket counters in the museum. Nevertheless, the tour was awesome

    If you're a tourist visiting Sydney for a few days, you can skip it unless it's raining and you can't find anything else to keep your kids busy.

    This place is NOT worth the price you pay. Dimly lit. Interactive stuff mostly broken. Boring displays.

    Skip the boomerang cafe! Short staffed, dirty and smelly!
