Our doors will be open from 8 December 2020 for 2-hour timed sessions to inspire your imagination with the world of science and technology. 

Tickets must be pre-booked online for all visitors in your group, including babies and children. We recommend booking early as tickets for each session are limited. 

For our COVID-19 safety measures and Frequently Asked Questions please click here.

Sessions run hourly from 9am each day. The last session starts at 3pm and Questacon closes at 5pm. Each session includes allocated time in 5 galleries and a live Spectacular Science Show.

Mini Q, Excite@Q including Free Fall, and the usual activities in The Shed remain closed for now.

Galleries and experiences included in each 2-hour session:

Each gallery will be open for a specific time during each session. As each group moves through a gallery, that space will close for cleaning before the next group arrives.

Signage in each gallery shows how to safely interact with our exhibits. Some exhibits can only be activated by our staff and others can be used by visitors, with safety precautions in place.

We have a number of audio experiences and apps you can download to enhance your Questacon experience. If you don’t have your own device during your visit, our team can demonstrate how these apps work.

Our friendly and knowledgeable staff will be available in each gallery to help you make the most of your visit!

From 9 December 2020, our brand new early learning program, Questacon Science Sprouts, will be running for junior scientists aged 3-6 years.
