    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 :)

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

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

    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

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

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