Invent and experiment with ideas, tools, science, technologies and art. In The Shed, you can imagine, create, collaborate, iterate and innovate. Celebrate success and learn from failure – it’s all about having fun with engineering and design.
You’ll find hands-on exhibits, artworks, and a tinkering studio where you can design and make. Build the highest – or widest, or most beautiful – tower or make a cool contraption to float on a wind table.
Want to put your tinkering to the test? Join our innovative staff as they explore changing challenges in our tinkering studio. Use simple everyday objects to tackle problems or create something beautiful. If you can dream it, you can build it!
The Shed is best suited for visitors aged 10 years and over.
