Questacon was opened in Canberra in 1988, with half of the initial $20 million construction cost paid for by a generous grant from Japan.
Today, the director Professor Graham Durant, leads a team of over 200 staff members as well as an additional 150 or so volunteer Explainers.
Each year, they welcome 400 000 visitors to our Centre in Canberra, while another 700 000 see the exhibitions in other museums and centres around Australia and overseas.
