Q Lab

Wrap your mind around some intriguing questions

Since opening in 2011, Questacon’s Q Lab has evolved to become a dynamic and experimental environment that encourages enquiry and aims to keep up-to-date with the scientific world.

Experience a wide range of scientific activities and demonstrations with Questacon’s science communicators and visiting scientists.

Look at the world differently: either up close with video microscopes or in slow motion with high-definition high-speed footage.

Q Lab also features a giant periodic table containing actual samples of 94 of the 118 known elements that are the building blocks of the universe.

Q Lab is open every day (except 25 December) with a variety of special events throughout the year.

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