Out of This World: Australia in the Space Age
Sat 15 May - Sun 18 July
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 take the kids on their very own space mission!
