Well played on the kids area! We have visited here a few times and the kids absolutely love it! So much for them to do and the fact that the canteen has pushed to become as low sugar free as possible.... more »
Great place to visit for all ages! The exhibits are fascinating & adapted for young children too. The children's inside playground is large & allows imaginative play. Came here on a weekday at 3pm & it was surprisingly quiet throughout the museum including the play area.
Such an awesome place to Visit. Definitely need a good entire day to see things. 2 days if you want to get the most out of it. The history of Melbourne is really great and the exhibits they have are top quality and high tech
