SparkLab, Sciencentre

It’s true. We’ll announce the opening date very soon. If you’re keen as mustard to know when the doors will open sign up to eNews, or check out social media (@qldmuseum), or pop back sometime soon to be in the know.

Sciencentre Fans
Thank you for your patience while we work through the exciting and challenging task of creating a new gallery. The pressure is on. This is the Sciencentre’s biggest upgrade since it opened at the Museum more than a decade ago.

Soon you’ll get to experience the interactive STEM* space, designed for your inner scientist to play, investigate and discover the wonders of our world. 

Do you have old photos from the Sciencentre? Tag your social happy snaps with #qldmuseum for the history books.

*Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths



We can’t wait to welcome you back! We’ll update you as soon as possible with the opening date.

Just in case you’ve missed it, due to the temporary closure, MyMuseum Memberships will automatically be extended to ensure your 12 months of Sciencentre experiences. For example if your membership expires in February 2018 (three months of closure time), your membership will be extended by three months starting from the opening of the new Sciencentre.

Check out the list of benefits and how to become a member. If you have any questions or need to check contact details email our Membership team. 



Thank you to schools that have registered interest for an excursion in the new Sciencentre. We’ll be in contact with you soon to discuss and finalise your excursion.

Information on learning resources of the new Sciencentre will be available soon to help you plan immersive STEM excursions for term 4, and information about making a booking.
