      School holidays at Scienceworks

      Bask in the light of the moon these school holidays with activities based around our new exhibition – Museum of the Moon! This incredible installation replicates the moon on a 1: 500,000 scale using NASA imagery of the lunar surface, as well as music from BAFTA and Ivor Novello Award winning composer, Dan Jones.

      Journey to the Moon and Back
      Don your imagination as we take you on a journey like no other in this free daily amphitheatre show. Discover how and where to find the moon, then launch off planet Earth, navigate the perils of space flight and return home safely once again.

      Earthlight: Lunar Hub
      Earthlight: Lunar Hub is an engaging virtual reality experience from Opaque Space, where you—the astronaut—explore a lunar base, walk on the Moon and experience breathtaking views of Earth!

      Stories in the Moonlight
      Who needs a reading light when you’ve got the moon? Hear moon adventures brought to life by our storytellers in daily activations of the Hobson's Bay City Council book cubby. You can also read by moonlight and at your leisure any time of the day.
