Information for your visit

Scienceworks 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.

The health and safety of all our visitors, staff and volunteers is our highest priority and we have some measures in place in line with Victorian Government guidelines:

We need your help

Don't forget to wear your face mask, and practice physical distancing and good hand hygiene. If you’re unwell, please rest up at home and visit us when you are well again. Please check the latest exposure sites before visiting and follow health directions accordingly.

Please aim to keep your visit under 90 minutes

To help ensure a safe and enjoyable experience, we're asking all visitors to try to limit their museum visit to 90 minutes, not including Planetarium or Lightning Room shows. We have allowed a generous buffer on our building capacity to allow groups who have purchased show tickets to have ample time for their visit.

Increased safety measures

The Pumping Station is temporarily closed to the public. All other galleries and spaces at Scienceworks are 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 from 12.45–1pm for cleaning.

Cashless payments

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

Contact tracing

In line with Victorian Government guidelines, you will be asked to complete contact tracing via the Service Victoria contact tracing portal as you arrive at Scienceworks. We suggest downloading the Service Victoria app in advance of arrival to help make your entry as efficient as possible.
