Little Explorers Day

Explore Questacon without the big kids!

Little Explorers Day will be a fun day for kids aged 0–6 years and their carers to explore Questacon without the big kids and school groups. Enjoy 50% off entry and discounted memberships, see a dinosaur puppet show, play with colours under a waterfall and try out our Science Time activities. Get up close with reptiles from the Canberra Reptile Zoo and check out the displays from community organisations with fabulous resources for young families. MiniQ, our gallery for 0–6 year olds, will be running timed sessions on the day – book in on arrival at the ticket desk.
