About Us

Scienceworks makes learning about science and technology a fun, interactive adventure.

Located in Spotswood, five kilometres from the Melbourne Central Business District, the museum presents science and technology in unexpected and involving ways. 

Hands-on participation is positively encouraged and visitors can take part in live demonstrations, shows, guided tours and special activities. There is also a programme of changing exhibitions.

Scienceworks is a great place to challenge curious minds and keep active bodies busy.

Melbourne Planetarium

The Melbourne Planetarium creates hyper-real, digital simulations of outer space in awe-inspiring astronomical shows. Sessions are information-rich and will take visitors to the stars and beyond.
