In 2013 this interactive science centre celebrates 21 years of offering hands-on science and technology, live demonstrations, cosmic adventures, electrifying displays and historical exhibitions.
Highlights include the Melbourne Planetarium, with its 16 metre domed ceiling and high-definition video of deep space, as well as guided tours, dynamic shows and temporary science and technology exhibitions.
Scienceworks Museum has an onsite café, as well as a barbecue area, covered seating and a playground, making it especially easy for groups, young kids and bring-your-own picnics
