Get museum entry tickets

We are excited to welcome you back to Scienceworks!

In line with Victorian Government regulations, restricted visitor numbers apply across all Museums Victoria venues.

Don't miss out – book online!

To ensure you don't miss out, online bookings are highly recommended. Limited onsite tickets are subject to availability.

Keep your visit under 90 minutes

To help ensure a safe and enjoyable experience, timed tickets are in operation and we're asking all visitors to limit their museum visit to 90 minutes.

We know this will be difficult for people who have purchased extra experiences. The good news is we have allowed a generous buffer on our building capacity to allow these groups to have ample time for their visit.

Cashless payments

We're going cashless across our venues – including shops and cafes.

Increased safety measures

The Pumping Station will remain temporarily closed to the public. All other galleries and spaces at Scienceworks including the Melbourne Planetarium and Lightning Room will be open with restricted visitor numbers in enclosed spaces and increased cleaning, hygiene and physical distancing measures in place.

The Ground Up exhibition will be closed daily between 12.45pm–1pm for cleaning and the Air Playground exhibition will be closed daily between 1.45pm–2pm for cleaning.

We need your help too

Don't forget to practice physical distancing and good hygiene. And please bring your face mask to wear when physical distancing cannot be maintained. If you’re unwell, please rest up at home and visit us when you are well again.

Visiting the Planetarium or Lightning Room?

To add a Planetarium or Lightning Room show to your ticket, select a museum entry session time at least half an hour prior to your selected show time.


In line with Victorian Government guidelines, we will collect the first name and phone number of every visitor for the sole purpose of contact tracing in the event of a suspected COVID-19 case. 

Museums Victoria actively promotes the management of a COVID Safe environment for all visitors and staff. Our COVID Safe plan reflects the most up-to-date public health directions.

We are so grateful for your ongoing patience and support and we can’t wait to see you soon.
