Science in Everyday Objects

16 October 2021 - 30 January 2022

Serendipitous scientific breakthroughs shape our lives, underpinning the technology we use every day to store our most important information, communicate with one another, and entertain ourselves.

See a small display of selected science objects from the Powerhouse collection in Store 1 at the Museums Discovery Centre.
