This is the place to come to ‘push it, pull it, spin it, bang it’, and inadvertently get a grasp on science. It is a great place to bring the kids, with interactive exhibitions on all things science-related. Also in the complex is the Melbourne Planetarium, with simulated night skies and 3D adventures through space. A historic pumping station is located on site, and tours are available. 2 Booker St, Spotswood; (03) 9392 4800; open 10am–4.30pm daily.
