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

    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.

    Coffee ? - Don't get it here, it's crap. Grab one from one of the many quality cafés nearby

    Take a tour if the museum's size is intimidating. You'll get shown the best bits and so you can double-back to check them out.

    Really disappointed with my visit today. I was saddened to find Zoe's House gone & 'replaced' with the Wiggles. Instead of a fun inclusive play my son with autism was overwhelmed & scared. #epicfail

    This is the coolest museum ever! There are so many different sections to explore and much of the museum is interactive so you have a great time here. Admission is only $10. Happy times ahead :)

    The popular Zoe's House has now closed. Keep an eye out for new activities for young children.

    Check to see what exhibits are on and when. Sometimes there is a crossover and quite a bit can be closed. It can leave a bad taste in your wallet!

    Go to Powerhouse Museum. Enjoy all the exhibits from Victorian era until the 80's. Do not miss the giant steam locomotive train near the entrance. Instant journey to the past.
