CSIRO Discovery Centre Canberra


The CSIRO Discovery Centre offers an interactive journey through CSIRO and Australian science history.

It is one of Canberra’s major attractions and is definitely worth adding to your list of things to do when you visit the city. The attraction presents science in an entertaining way to educate visitors of all ages about the fascinating world of research and innovation.

The exhibition is self-guided and allows visitors to immerse themselves in stories of Australian research and its value to society. A highlight of visiting the Discovery Centre is the showcase of national research collections managed by CSIRO, including using scientific techniques to classify real shark eggs and the opportunity to get hands-on with real specimens.
