Explore the science behind all the familiar things in our homes.

This exhibition presents all sorts of wonderful things we might find around the home, from the food we eat, to the appliances we use, to the animals we share our living space with.

House Secrets is highly interactive and offers a broad range of engaging exhibits.

Come along and explore the science in everyday objects.

House Secrets closes on 14 July to make way for a 
new exciting exhibition Think Ahead.

There seems to be some confusion about where exhibits are on display/shown in relation to "venue" perhaps where your web site says "now showing" could be changed to "now showing at SCIENCE WORKS SPOTSWOOD" Therefore giving a clear impression to the exhibits location regards Rob Pearson

Hi Rob, thanks for your feedback. Exhibitions only appear on the website on pages of the museum at which they are showing. This is identified by the different coloured banners that indicate the name of the museum at top left. So for instance, the orange banner on this page with the word 'Scienceworks' indicates that this exhibition is showing there. The URL also includes within it the name of the museum at which the exhibition is showing. Hope this helps.
