Is your whānau ready to get hands-on with science and experience the future, today?

Explore Science Fiction Science Future and enter a world where science fiction bursts into reality.

Uncover the science and technology principles behind inventions and innovations we once thought were only possible in the realm of science fiction.

Experience a robotic face come alive to mimic your expressions, harness the power of your brainwaves to challenge others, learn about our ancestors’ predictions for the future and imagine the incredible innovations that are coming! Plus so much more, in this interactive, immersive exhibition.

Science Fiction Science Future features 16 interactive exhibits and is aimed at tamariki aged 5 to 12 years old, and their whānau.

This exhibition makes science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) principles accessible, exploring concepts in everyday terms to encourage critical thinking, curiosity, and a love of science.

This exhibition also provides rich learning opportunities for school groups. Teachers can book a STEM focused education programme for students, to make the most of the exhibition content and extend the learning post-visit with our range of online resources.
