My mission: leave no bacon and egg roll untasted in Eastern Sydney.

This place is huge. I spent 4 hours with a family member visiting Sydney for the day and we wandered around, looked, poked, prodded and talked about all manner of things. The exhibits are a good lead in to conversations and discussions. It's fun to share the discovery with someone else.
I've never been before and I'd definitely consider going again. It was non-school holidays so the number of little tackers was quite small if that's the kind of thing that would set you off.
I feel their strengths are focussing on the items of yesteryear: Interesting things about locomotives or magnets, moon landings, or the history of computers, etc. Some of the permanent exhibits are showing signs of wear and need some modernising. A visual display panel that tried to highlight the wonderful modern world of satellite imagery really felt very dated and out of step with what's being done now. The phone in your pocket has better satellite imagery than what was being shown.
That aside, I still had a fact filled and interesting stroll through a bunch of topics and thoughts. Definitely worth the cost of entry (which by the way is very reasonable at just $15 for an adult ticket).
A surprising find was that the little cafe on level 3 (accessible from street for the public too) served a really nice iced tea and mini baked cheesecake. So I had my sugar fix to keep wandering around.
In summary? Good. Probably great for families with kids. some modernising for modern topics required. All round worth it. Recommend.
Was surprised to find that the takeaway sushi in this store is ok. Certainly a lot better than you find from other supermarkets takeaway options that always seem to have hard stale rice. This store makes it on premises and it's pretty fresh.
