25th Birthday Party



2 Booker Street
Spotswood, Victoria, 3015
What's On

Our place of wonder; Scienceworks turns 25 this year and we’re throwing a party to celebrate!

Museum Members, their friends and family are invited to experience Scienceworks in a new light, after dark. Invite your non-member friends or family to experience the wonder that is being a member to this exclusive, after-hours event.  

Join us in celebrating our iconic exhibitions and unique experiences by sharing in the wonder that Scienceworks has brought to us all in the last 25 years, with giveaways and prizes plus more on the night!

Hot food and drinks will be available for purchase during the party.

Silent Disco - sold out

You can’t celebrate a birthday without some dancing. So take a choreographed Silent Disco tour through the galleries and experience your favourite exhibitions with a little bit of groove.


These massive bubbles can encapsulate families, that’s right, families. We’re talking huge, people-sized bubbles. Need we say more?

Sow Silver Gum Seeds

25th anniversaries are usually celebrated with something silver. Sow Silver Gum seeds to take home and nurture as your keepsake from our very special celebration.


As the sun sets over Scienceworks, we’ll take out our telescopes so that you can enjoy some stargazing in our arena. Weather permitting.

Live Science Show

It wouldn’t be a Scienceworks party without some exciting science party tricks! Watch us demonstrate how to decorate, set the mood and make a cake; the Scienceworks way!

Video Message from NASA JPL Engineer, Dr. Beth Jens

We have some very special friends wishing us a happy birthday, join us in watching a special video message from Dr. Beth Jens, all the way from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratories!

Melbourne Planetarium and Lightning Room Shows
