MOD. is a place for kids who love hands on, interaction and all things STEM!
There’s a mix of diverse and sensory activities catering for a wide range of ages, knowledge and capabilities. These are spaces for doing, not just seeing and best of all it’s TOTALLY FREE!

There are seven gallery spaces which host a new exhibition every six months. Click here to find out what’s showing at the moment

Kids will be inspired about all things science and technology and although their website states that the exhibitions are primarily aimed at older kids (ages 15+) we’ve taken our younger ones and they’ve also really enjoyed this space. Parents you might just need to interact and guide little ones through.

Before you visit download the app (not required, but useful) and/or pick up the handy guide when you arrive to help you navigate MOD.

There is an inhouse cafe and MOD. shop where you can grab a bite to eat and shop for products inspired by research, science and design.

  • The Adelaide Gaol is one of the oldest remaining colonial public buildings in Adelaide and is the site of some of the State's more interesting, grisly past. Experience what life was like behind bars for the prisoners who once called the Adelaide Gaol their home. The Adelaide Gaol housed some of the state's most notorious and dangerous criminals. Almost 300,000 prisoners whiled away some time at His (or Her) Majesty's pleasure, and 45 unfortunates were executed within its walls - including the only woman to be executed in South Australia. Approximately 300,000 prisoners passed through the Gaol during its working years and 45 people were executed. Their bodies are buried within the grounds of the Gaol. The first public hanging took place in November 1840 while the site was still under construction.
