Ignite your imagination in SparkLab, an interactive science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) space, ideal for 6 to 13 year olds!

Follow your curiosity and bring out your inner scientist as you question, investigate and wonder about the world around you.

Explore our interactive exhibits* across three zones and discover how STEM affects your everyday world.

See live experiments at the Science Bar and get hands on at the Maker Space, designing and creating a solution to a challenging question. 

On Saturday 20 February, we’re making accommodations to support visitors who prefer a quieter, sensory-friendly experience. Learn more about our upcoming sensory-friendly session here.

*Please note: during this time a small number of high-touch exhibits within SparkLab might be unavailable to ensure the health and safety of all visitors, staff and volunteers.


For the foreseeable future, SparkLab has temporarily changed to a timed entry experience. Visitor numbers to SparkLab will be strictly limited to ensure a safe space and increased access so you can get the most out of your visit. We highly recommend you purchase tickets online in advance, particularly during school holiday peak period to avoid disappointment. 

SparkLab is open daily from 10am to 3:30pm with session times at: 

10:00am - 11:30am
12noon - 1:30pm
2pm - 3:30pm
