MOD. is a futuristic museum of discovery. It’s a place to be and be inspired by ideas at the intersection of science, art, and innovation.
Our exhibitions are designed for people aged 15-25, showcasing how research shapes our understanding of the world around us to inform our futures.
MOD. is like no other museum experience in Australia. We bring together researchers, industries, and students to push boundaries, explore, and be inspired.
We present one in-gallery and one online exhibition each year, along with a program of workshops, talks and events.
