Experimentations

Exhibition

As a precautionary measure, this exhibition has been suspended. Read more about our COVID-19 update.

Experimentations and experimenting both start from everyday experience. How does a battery work? What is lightning? This exhibition shows how scientific and technological breakthroughs have answered questions like these and changed many of our ideas about everyday phenomena.

In Experimentations YOU become the scientist, engineer, thinker, artist and inventor.

Discover marvellous machines, get creative in the Tinkering Zone, get zapped in the electric chair, play with sound and light waves.

This exhibition is included with General Entry to the Powerhouse Museum, and tickets can be purchased online at the link below or on your arrival at the Museum.
