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 South Australian Aviation Museum, located close to the Railway Museum and the Maritime Museum such a cool place to visit!

Lots of fun!  There's a large variety of engines, propellers and memorabilia, technical books and films to check out.

Special events are met with a similar style of (dis)organisation. A birthday party will be a few days off and the party bag is where she wanted to add that something extra special. It can be tough when there needs to be 20 party bags for the party, add in her last minute shopping style and all too often Sarah found herself staring at bags of plastic in department stores, thinking - lucky if those make it home after the party and not straight to the bin. She knew there had to be another way.  Three…
