At Questacon – The National Science and Technology Centre you’ll experience science in extraordinary ways.
There’s something for everyone in Questacon’s eight galleries. Free-fall down a six metre slide, freeze your own shadow, experience an earthquake or challenge a robot to a game of air hockey. Little scientists and their carers will enjoy Mini Q as they play, discover and learn in a gallery just for 0-6 year olds. No visit is complete without watching—or starring in—a Spectacular Science Show.
With over 200 interactive exhibits to explore, at Questacon you’ll discover the smarter way to have fun.
Our Q Lab gallery features a giant periodic table containing actual samples of 94 of the 118 known elements that are the building blocks of the universe.
Sisyphus is a visually spectacular exhibit that continually carves intricate dune patterns using stored mathematical equations and themes.
