Q Lab


Since opening in 2011, Questacon’s Q Lab has evolved to become a dynamic and experimental space dedicated to the exploration of ideas. 

Our staff can show you a wide range of demonstrations from many areas of science. We encourage you to ask questions, share your ideas, and suggest ways for the staff to test those ideas for you. Many of the exhibits in Q Lab also lend themselves to exploration, so we encourage you to play and try using them in different ways. Make sure you take a look at our giant periodic table containing samples of 94 of the 118 known elements; these are the building blocks of our universe!

Q Lab is best suited to visitors aged seven years and older.
