Galleries, Museums and Collections

When Scienceworks opened in 1992, its vision was a place for young people to play with science. Scienceworks linked Melbourne’s industry, heritage and applied technology in one place: a new building looking across the arena to the century-old Pumping Station, all under the grand arc of the West Gate Bridge.

Today, Scienceworks is bursting with things to challenge curious minds of all ages. In just one visit, you can stroll among the gigantic machines that kept the city running, enjoy electrifying theatre in the Lightning Room, let your little ones roam safely in enclosed spaces, wander through immersive exhibitions and drop into deep space in the Melbourne Planetarium.

Like its visitors, the team at Scienceworks are always asking questions. How does it work? Why does it do that? How is our world changing? Join them on an expedition to understand the mysteries of the universe and our everyday lives.
