Sciencework Museum trip

Yesterday I went to Sciencework Museum and Melbourne Planetarium with bf just for fun, since I told him I've never been to Planetarium and he take me there. Surprisingly the Sciencework museum was pretty fun, it has lots of sections showing different kind of exhibitions

Here's few pictures that I took
This is the first Noughts and Crosses machine, a.k.a XOX game
I thought it was only for display but you can actually play it

This is me playing with the computer, I'm pretty suck at this game, lol

This exhibition is called Nitty Gritty Super City, exploring science in the city. It has lots of fun facts and activities for children, they are encourage to push buttons, pull ropes, investigate materials, encounter sounds, objects and other people.
It has a construction zone, music room, little cafe where children can pretend to be the waiter/es and also facts about rubbish and recycle

Inside the Nitty Gritty Super City, cute decoration rite?

Melbourne CBD and surrounded areas was built from LEGO, how cool is this??
It looks exactly like the real thing! That's Eureka Tower, the tall blue building with gold thingy at the top, that's Melbourne skyscraper located in Southbank

In the Music Bowl room, taking pictures from one of the 'funny mirror'

Riding the 'Penny Farthing bike', was very popular back in the 1880's

This section here is called 'House Secret', exploring the science behind everyday objects in our house, the food we eat, the the appliances we use, also fun facts and activities.
With the giant dryer

Massive dress that are made from very heavy and thick fabric, different from the fabric that are used to make our clothing

Biggest on/off button i've ever seen, lol, but they are not functional

There are no pictures from the planetarium because we are not allowed to take pictures inside, we watch this show called 'Our Living Climate', it's about how our climate first evolved and how it transformed, also about Ice Aged and the start of new life forms

It was a fun experience, and highly recommended for children to go there, free entry for children (3-16 years) and concessions
They are open daily from 10 am to 4.30 pm, located in 2 Booker St, Spotswood, Victoria, 3015
Here's the Official website

Cheers, Angel
