About

Created by the renowned Scitech in Perth, Australia, Going Places is an interactive science exhibition that explores the technology humans have developed for travel. If you have ever wanted to pilot an airship, ride on a hovercraft, or control traffic in a city, now is your big chance!

As well as exploring the technology that gets us around everyday, visitors will explore the way that travel has shaped the social fabric of our time.

Visitors will also see new technology and get a glimpse of where our future is headed.

With 17 interactive exhibits and 8 information kiosks detailing the incredible technology pioneered by humans to make the farthest reaches of our planet accessible, Going Places will be a wild ride!

The key messages of this exhibition are: observe, understand and use an incredible range of travel technology to see how it makes our lives easier and better, AND learn how the Earth’s awesome size and natural processes, like gravity, wind, currents, waves, friction, and changing landscapes are overcome by the ingenious designs, researched and developed over time.

Testimonial
  • Going Places was one of our best attended exhibitions we've hosted at our museum. Membership sales were also strong throughout the summer, driven by the popularity of the exhibition.

We provide instructors with essential questions to ask students at each area and a lesson that explores and expands on the ideas presented.
