SPECTRUM is an interactive, immersive, shareable, and playable experience now on at THEMUSEUM!

Local and international artists have created 14 fun and colourful installations for all ages. From sensory ball pit rooms to experiencing sound transformed into sight, this innovative hands-on exhibition explores the effect that colour has over you.

And making a repeat visit – a guest favourite – Martin Creed’s, Work No. 329 Half the Air in a Given Space returns with the artist choosing all pink balloons.


We are thrilled to develop this wonderful experience for the entire community, so don’t forget your camera and be prepared to step over the threshold of colour.

SPECTRUM is included with the price of admission.
