In response to the South Australian Government’s Roadmap for easing COVID-19 restrictions, MOD. is reopening to the public from 10am, Tuesday 18th August, and we can’t wait to welcome you back to SEVEN SIBLINGS FROM THE FUTURE with some small changes in place to keep you safe and well.
In line with the Step 3 of the South Australian Government’s Roadmap for easing COVID-19 restrictions, MOD. will permit 1 person per 2 sqm to ensure that we adhere to physical distancing guidelines. At times of high visitor attendance, you may be asked to wait before entering a gallery until other visitors have left.
Online exhibitions and content
MOD. is currently closed, but we still have a lot of content online that you can explore with your class.
We have recently launched LIFE INTERRUPTED, an online exhibition exploring wellbeing and connectedness in an uncertain world. This exhibition has been created to be a foundation for feelings in the current global situation, providing a mix of informative, distracting, and entertaining exhibits for people to get lost in.
We also have uploaded some additional content for SEVEN SIBLINGS FROM THE FUTURE. We have character videos and guided tours of the science behind the exhibition. Between these two resources we hope that they provide inspiration for your students or lesson plans when it comes to thinking about the future. These videos are all accessible on the sibling exhibit pages under the ‘Online’ tab.
Schools and other groups are welcome to come and explore our gallery spaces. While MOD. is open to visitors of all ages, our exhibitions are designed for 15-25 year olds. If you plan to bring primary school aged children, take some time to visit beforehand. Please see the schools information here for more detail.We recommend allowing at least an hour for your visit. Please note that MOD. has no bag storage facilities.If you are bringing a group to visit, please fill out the enquiry form below at least 2 weeks before your visit. We will get back to you as soon as possible to confirm your visit.Please note that we restrict groups to 30 people per time slot. If you are looking to book for a larger group you will need to do so over multiple time slots. We recommend up to 15 people in each gallery at a time, so please divide your group up accordingly prior to your visit.

Pre- and post-visit resources
Before you visit
Here are some documents that might help you and your students in preparing for a visit:
Teacher’s Guide — which contains the exhibition text, as well as some links to resources that we recommend. You can use these to add contextual information for students before (or after) your visit.
Easy Access Guide — which has the same content as the Teacher’s guide but in more accessible language. This might be useful for younger students of Primary School age or students with additional learning requirements.
MOD. Social Story — which has images and explanation running through a visit to the museum. This may be useful for those with Autism Spectrum Disorder or to prepare younger students before a visit.
SEVEN SIBLINGS FROM THE FUTURE is a narrative-based exhibition. When you visit you will explore the galleries, tracking your visit results on either an app or a paper passport. Decide before you come which solution works best for your students.
After you visit
If you are using the paper passport, your students will need to type in their results to discover their Soul Sibling. This takes place in the final gallery, but you may find it easier to do this when you’re back in the classroom via this link.
