The basics

Scitech is located in West Perth, between the Central Business District and the popular suburb of Subiaco, making it easy to visit during a day of exploring the city. Tickets can be purchased online in advance to save time when you arrive.

The museum puts on at least two themed exhibitions every year. Examples include “Map Your World” and “Rescue”. The Puppet Theatre and Science Theatre entertain and educate through storytelling and films, while the planetarium features a dome theater for shows about planets and constellations.
