Air Playground soars back into Scienceworks

The most fun you’ll have learning this summer!

Air Playground is back at Scienceworks this summer by popular demand. The all-time family favourite returns reinvigorated with fresh experiences, activities and interactives that will blow you away. 

Opening on Saturday 9 December 2023, Air Playground offers visitors a unique opportunity to explore and interact with the marvels of one of Earth’s most amazing invisible realms: air.  

Step into a world of fun and discovery within Scienceworks’ expansive 600 square-metre exhibition space. This kaleidoscopic, hands-on exhibition will captivate young minds and science lovers alike, unravelling the mysteries of the atmosphere. Explore the science of air through playful interactive zones including: 

  • Squish: Embark on a full-body experience as you grapple with a colossal, tentacled inflatable sculpture – it's like a giant hug from the air! 
  • Fly: Let your inner aviator take off as you craft and launch your very own paper planes in an aerodynamic extravaganza. It's an aviation enthusiast's dream come true. 
  • Whoosh: Brace yourself for a whirlwind of excitement as you ‘whoosh’ scarves through a tangle of air tubes then play catch as the scarves float dreamily to the ground 
  • Flow:  Step into a dreamy breeze-filled wonderland where soft fabric tubes and floating balls that dance with the wind demonstrate mesmerising magic of airflow redirection. 

Museums Victoria Director & CEO, Lynley Crosswell said that kids will love Air Playground’s colourful, immersive blend of entertainment and education where learning is as exciting as it is enlightening. 

"Air Playground is not only a celebration of the wonders of the atmosphere but a fun-filled day out for families to explore and learn through play.” 

Don't miss this new opportunity to embark on a journey of scientific exploration, discovery and fun. Engage your senses, spark your curiosity and let science blow you away.
