Information for your visit

Closing soon! Don't miss your opportunity these school holidays to explore our robotic future at this exciting, immersive exhibition before it finishes on 30 January.

The line between humans and technology is blurring. We are creating machines that are increasingly humanlike, while embracing technology into our bodies and lives, making us more and more like the machines we build.

As creators of technology, the questions we ask and the choices we make will shape our future. What will that future look like?

Designed by Questacon, Born or Built? Our Robotic Future examines the similarities and differences between humans and machines, explores our overlapping shared future and questions the choices that we make to get there. Try out fun interactive exhibits, including an epic battle of the brainwaves, a robot obstacle course and the most human-like robotic arm you'll ever meet.

After you've explored Born or Built in full, why not head into the groundbreaking permanent exhibition Beyond Perception: Seeing the Unseen to learn about the hidden forces of science that shape our world? Or, enjoy the entertainment of our new, game-show style Lightning Room show: Lights, Energy, Action! With our recently updated cafe, historic pumping station, mind-bending Planetarium and plenty of room for the kids to run and play outside, there's something for the whole family. Make a day of it in the west by seeing how science works, only at Scienceworks.
