A good place to visit in the school holidays. I was impressed with the number of hands on exhibits as well as the little movie showings. The staff were very friendly and welcoming and we were lucky enough to be there on a day when there was a science show on, which was really interesting.
Great observatory near the top of the botanic gardens. They have little film showings once or twice an hour (one geared towards kids, the other more adult). Very fun, interactive exhibits. Great to spend a few hours during the day, probably worth a night visit too!
