Welcome to the dawn of the space age.
From the 1950s through to the 1970s, Australia was gripped with excitement as humanity made its first forays beyond Earth’s atmosphere.
From cutting edge scientific research to architecture, design, television and more, ‘Out of this World’ explores Australia’s role in the space race. Learn about the history of Woomera Rocket Range, see how futuristic architecture influenced Australia’s Expo pavilion in 1970, and meet everyone’s favourite pencil-nosed spaceman, Mr Squiggle. Kids can go on their own space adventure with a free activity book.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, timed bookings are required. Session availability may be subject to change as restrictions change. Please check our website for up-to-date information and to make your booking.
