Housing important cultural and scientific collections of the State of Victoria, Scienceworks is a world-renowned science museum located in the suburb of Spotswood. Established in 1992, the museum is housed in a large building near the historic Spotswood Pumping Station, the steam engines of which form an associated exhibit. Other displays and exhibits include hands-on experiments, demonstrations, and educational tours, including a stop at the planetarium, especially popular with kids. Make sure to visit the museum's "lightning room," a 120-seat auditorium presenting demonstrations about electricity and featuring a giant Tesla Coil, an instrument capable of producing spectacular lightning bolts.

Scienceworks is a fun place to learn and discover new things. Scienceworks is the perfect place to take your kids in the school holidays. The renovation had greatly improved the venue with fascinating new exhibits for those of all ages - not to mention the great air conditioning. Free entry for concession holders makes this a worthwhile trip as well as the various shows which are put on.
Amazing exhibition! We couldn't been happier seeing the moon so close. Also they have a great play area for children all ages. Our 6 months baby had a blast!
