Questacon, the Australian National Science and Technology Centre, is a science museum located in Canberra. It combines science with entertainment, and includes a number of interesting exhibits, such as a house undergoing a simulated earthquake, and a play area for the 0–6 age bracket.

Questacon is open almost every day, and is one of Canberra’s major tourist attractions. However, it is not free. See the Wikipedia article and the museum website for more information.

  1. I used to live in Canberra and had a great day out at Questacon! Although even better is when it’s lit up on the outside at Enlighten Festival! Thanks for for sharing 🙂

    • Thanks for the feedback! I have visited Questacon several times (although the best museum in Canberra is probably the War Memorial).
