Scienceworks bridges the gap between the old and the new, housed on a purpose-built site next to the historic Spotswood Pumping Station in Melbourne.
Guided tours of Spotswood, one of Australia’s most important heritage sites, are available daily, alongside a dazzling array of other exhibitions inside the museum’s main building.
Here, visitors can explore applied science in fields such as sports, urban life and the home, as well as enjoying temporary exhibitions with a focus on hands-on learning.
The site also houses the Melbourne Planetarium, which screens several different shows every day.
