Mission To Mars

Get ready to blast off into space on the Mission to Mars experience. Adventure to the red planet with the Questanuats and visit the only 7 metre Mars globe in the southern hemisphere. Experience a Marsquake and explore the challenges of living on this dynamic planet. Mission to Mars is a mix of theatre and exhibition and is a different experience to the usual hands-on activities. You will be guided through selected galleries and enjoy a range of immersive experiences to gain the skills and knowledge needed to be among the first humans on Mars.



Questacon - The National Science and Technology Centre was officially opened on 23 November, 1988. Based in Canberra, the Nation's capital, Questacon is Australia's leading interactive science and technology Centre.

To achieve its aim of promoting greater understanding and awareness of science and technology within the community, Questacon is committed to making an experience with science and technology fun, educational and interactive. Questacon has over 200 exhibits and approximately 300 000 people visit the Centre in Canberra each year.

Free-fall down a six metre slide, experience an earthquake or challenge a robot to a game of air hockey. Little scientists and their carers will enjoy Mini Q as they play, discover and learn in a gallery just for 0-6 year olds. And no visit is complete without watching—or starring in—a Spectacular Science Show. With over 200 interactive exhibits to explore in eight galleries, at Questacon you'll discover the smarter way to have fun.
