We booked the Dark Universe show in the Planetarium and while we were waiting took part in the multitude of hands on experiments that started at the very basic right up to bionic limbs and how you interact with them. The Planetarium was a real buzz which was evident by the continual chatter from everyone as the left the theatre... More

We arrived after three o'clock and there was a reduced entrance fee - only $34 for two adults. We had a great time and there was loads to learn. We had missed the last planetarium show but there was a smaller show on which was good. Main highlights include the mind game where the aim of the game was to... More

can be tricky to find for tourists, plenty of good and interesting interactive things for adults and kids, cafes and public toilets, there is a cost to enter, not cheap but reasonable, make sure you pay for underground parking.

The daily run information sessions and theatre pieces are professionally produced and provide fantastic entertainment for children of all ages. For me - I can go into the... More

we're a Scitech member and visit this place regularly. Its awesome for both kids and similarly curious parents. Exhibits and displays are changing so each time we go in there's a different theme. Kids love some of the hands on displays. The underlying learnings are invaluable for young curious minds. They have a great planetarium with some good shows running... More

'We've never visited a planetarium before. Scitech has enough kids activities and fun stuff to last the whole day. The planetarium was very interesting to watch. Great for the kids to learn Astronomy.

This is such a good experience for kids. I have been there many times for excursions before. Scitech has really cool exhibitions that teach kids in a fun way. They are always updating their shows so you can go back as many times as you want. I definitely recommend going into the room with the big screen and chairs that... More

Fun place to take your kids but should include advice on visitor info that it is not really an adult attraction, too simplistic for adult enjoyment.

I have been to scitech multiple times like i am sure many other perth and surrounds inhabitants have been, and every time it gets a lot duller. even the first time no one in my friend group actually enjoyed the experience and the high price for food. There is one exception that will never get old; the planetarium. the planetarium... More

My children enjoyed the place very much and the exhibits were very interesting and interactive. There were also interesting activities and shows at various timings for the children. However, it would be good to bring your own lunch as there were no café, only vending machines, at the centre. Therefore, we had to get out for lunch and were able... More
