MOD. at the University of South Australia is a futuristic museum of discovery, a place to be and be inspired.


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 six 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. MOD. presents an ambitious annual program including two seasonal exhibitions as well as talks, workshops and special events.
