Machines in Action Family Day @ Scienceworks

Home > Melbourne > Family | Kids | Outdoor
Old fashioned steam-powered fun
The Machines in Action Family Day at Scienceworks earns the distinction of being both educational and fun. Your kids may think that a first generation iPad is old technology, but watching hundred year old machines in operation may change their minds.

The historic working vehicle collection owned by Museum Victoria is the focus of the day, but there are more activities than just seeing watching demonstrations and seeing the parade of old steam engines and tractors. Throughout the day, kids can take steam train rides on the Springvale Live Steamers miniature model railway.

Entry to the Machines in Action Family Day is included in the admission price to Scienceworks, so you can also enjoy their educational and fun exhibits suitable for all ages.

Machines in Action Family Day is a regular event run by Scienceworks, occurring several times a year. The upcoming Family Day is on Sunday the 14th of August, from 10:30am until 2:30pm.

Your Comment
I love these old steam powered machines. My husband and I went to Steamfest in Scoresby last year and had a fantastic day watching the steam driven vehicles. The grand parade was rather special.
