Scienceworks Museum will take you by surprise, show you interesting stuff, and get you to test out science yourself.
When we went with family, the kids really enjoyed it and learnt a lot, and so did I.

There is a huge house in Scienceworks with different rooms, and in each room there is facts, pictures and things to do. It shows you what you can actually find in your house, explains how food gets mouldy, and stuff you can find under your couch.

There is a huge couch that you can sit on and there are four TV ads to choose from. It is so different and fun, but it actually feels like a real house, just everything is bigger.

There is a big bed and shows you about bed bugs, it kind of scared my niece but it is interesting to see.

There is a cool sports section where you can race against Cathy Freeman, race in wheelchairs, play basketball and soccer, learn about eye tricks and other amazing things.

Upstairs is an area dedicated to puzzles and educational stuff. The kids will definitely get something out of every aspect of Scienceworks.

When you are done looking inside, go and enjoy the cool and unique playground they have for kids. There is also a cool microphone wall; there is one on one side and the other is further away. Kids can go to each end and talk to each other, and it'll feel like they are right next to other.

Go check out the underground train station and have a look at the cool things in there. You can't really take photos because it's quite dark, but it is something that we missed the first time we went, but the second time we really loved it.

Scienceworks Museum is a fun place and children would love to see it. They are open every day of the year apart from Good Friday & Christmas Day.

That sounds like one of the most interesting and interactive science museums I've heard of.
