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!

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.

There are also events and exhibitions that happen regularly at MOD.
From Jan – November 2024 check out “Broken” – an exploration of how the world could be different if we imagined new ways of being. If our old systems are broken, what should we build in their place?
A captivating and interactive experience for the whole family. The futuristic atmosphere and interactive elements will transport you to another world, making it an immersive and exciting adventure from start to finish.

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 South Australian Aviation Museum, located close to the Railway Museum and the Maritime Museum such a kid friendly, fun, informative and hands on place to visit. SAAM has 27 significant Aircraft on display, all of them under cover in our display hangars. Several of our aircraft are the only examples of their type on display in Australia. Most of the aircraft have flown in South Australia at some point in their life and every one has a story and a history.  The volunteers are AMAZING and there's SO much to see! Some of the planes are HUGE and you can explore the cockpits of most of them too.  There's a large variety of engines, propellers and memorabilia, technical books and films to check out. The museum building used to be in Darwin in the war and was brought to Port Adelaide just after the war ended. The Museum continues to develop through the addition of more displays, restorations and general improvement of presentation and facilities. It remains a totally volunteer organisation. 📷 @jaynie_soundchain_aerwyn (IG) 📷 @jaynie_soundchain_aerwyn (IG) 📷 @jaynie_soundchain_aerwyn (IG) 📷 @jaynie_soundchain_aerwyn (IG) 📷 @jaynie_soundchain_aerwyn (IG) 📷 @jaynie_soundchain_aerwyn (IG) Opening Hours10am to 4pm every day except Christmas Day.
