Parking

We have accessible parking spaces in the main Scienceworks car park right near the building entry. Larger buses can park in Booker Street. There are kerb ramps in front of the museum forecourt.

Transport

The route from Spotswood station to Scienceworks has kerb ramps at all road crossings. Ramp access to the station is graded in accordance with accessibility standards.

Wheelchairs

We have wheelchairs that you can borrow from the information desk on a first-come basis.
You'll find accessible toilets on the ground floor of the main building and in the Planetarium foyer. All exhibition galleries and public spaces have lift and/or ramp access.

There are four dedicated wheelchair spaces in the Planetarium and two in the Lightning Room. We recommend you arrive 10–15 minutes early to make sure you save your place.

Assistive listening

You'll find hearing loops in the Planetarium, Lightning Room, Amphitheatre and Auditorium.

Blind/low vision access

Service animals are welcome in the museum. The lift has tactile indicators. Our exhibitions have tactile components and we have touch trolleys in the exhibition galleries on most days. Please ask at the ticket desk for more information.
