Discovery World

Hands-on science

Discovery World is a hands-on, play-oriented educational space.

It's science disguised as fun. Or fun disguised as science? You decide!

Witness weird optical effects in the Light Zone, challenge a friend to a battle of brains with MindBall, learn about friction during a game of air hockey and much more.

Chat with one of our roaming Science Communicators to learn about everyday science, or come to The Greatest Science Show in the History of the World, Ever to see some incredible (and sometimes explosive) experiments.

Purchase your ticket to Discovery World Tropical Forest at the Otago Museum Shop. All shows, programmes and events in Discovery World Tropical Forest are included in the cost of admission.
