  • Took the kids today, easy travel from the central coast, close affordable parking and most of the displays in the museum are free. There is a fantastic hands on display full of science and physics concepts for the kids to explore, including lifting a car! Also has displays on the history of the steelworks and general local history. Great affordable family day out.
  • Great Morning spent with children 8 and 9. Alice Wonderland display was great as well as the usual displays .....Always see something new each time we go ...Thanks Newcastle
