Museums Victoria's collection comprises over 15 million objects, far more than can be displayed, and over 40,000 of them are stored at Scienceworks.

Walk through the collection store, where historical treasures are stacked on shelves that reach to the roof. You'll see cars, motorcycles, equipment from TV history, miniature windmills, cannons and more.

Hear stories of rare and unique collection objects and learn about how we preserve the collection for the generations to come.

Meet your guide near the Information Desk. Tours run for 30 minutes and numbers are limited.
