MOD. at the University of South Australia is an futuristic museum of discovery, a place to be and be inspired.
Given the highly interactive nature of MOD. exhibits, galleries are temporarily closed to protect the health and safety of our visitors. We are currently showing SEVEN SIBLINGS FROM THE FUTURE and LIFE INTERRUPTED as fully online, interactive virtual exhibitions.
With dynamic, changing exhibition programs, MOD. inspires young adults aged 15+ about science and technology, showcasing how research shapes our understanding of the world to inform the future.
For visitors, MOD. is a free science experience like no other. A tourist icon bringing together the general public, researchers, students and industry to interact, learn and be inspired – MOD. is Australia’s boldest, and South Australia’s only, interactive public science and creativity space.
MOD. offers seven purpose-built gallery areas over two floors, a cafe, shop, and lecture theatre, housed within the University’s new Health Innovation Building on Adelaide’s cultural boulevard on North Terrace. It features Australia’s first Science on a Sphere, a room-sized display that shows planetary data on a sphere surrounded by touchscreens.
