Scienceworks

Scienceworks is another place that you can spend some serious time with your kids.


Scienceworks


Downstairs you'll find things about food, the human body, household appliances, pets and other household creatures which maybe you'd actually prefer not to know about!


Upstairs there's a section for 3-8 year olds called Nitty Gritty Super City where there's tons to do......

.......It's got all sorts of things you'd need to build a city..... like ship's cargo to unload.........

.......cafe's to eat in or serve at........diggers to drive.........

........wheelbarrows to push.........cranes to hoist loads........

........musical instruments to bang........ a bus stop to sit at and
lots more too.

Nitty Gritty Super City

There's also sporty things to learn, information about stormwater and the Pumping Station to look round.........

........the Pumping Station was part of Melbourne's first sewer system.

You'll also see vehicles like steamrollers being driven around.

Then there's all the temporary exhibitions to see! .... and the outside playgrounds!!

Luckily, with a concession card you'll be able to come back again and again!

Scienceworks exhibition

There are other sections you can go to like The Planetarium and The Lightning Room but you have to pay for these.

Take note though that rainy day weekends are very busy, especially in the Nitty Gritty Super City area..........

.........Try and come along during the week if possible.
