Permanent Exhibits

Our Permanent exhibits have moved all-around THEMUSEUM! Explore all 5 floors to experience them all.

Animation Station

Are you an aspiring filmmaker? Then take your skills to the test at the Animation Station, THEMUSEUM’s stop-motion animation studio. Plot your drama, frame-by-frame, in front of the camera using supplied props to inspire the next Steven Spielberg. And once Johnny has finally found his true love, or the giant centipede has swallowed the doomed automobile, play it back to your surrounding audience and enjoy! Click here to watch your uploaded animation!

Tot Spot

This colourful area is designed for our youngest visitors to explore their creativity! The gallery is designed especially for children up to 4 years of age. The TotSpot introduces babies and toddlers to early learning principles through visual and tactile stimuli.

Beat Bender

Play with different sounds, tempos, and beats on this colour-changing drum.

Bed of Nails

A favourite of visitors to THEMUSEUM, come lie on the Bed of Nails platform and hold down the button that slowly raises a series of nails, lifting you up!

Shadow Play

The large white screen on the main floor is the Shadow Play. Turn the coloured lights located behind the screen on and off to create multi-coloured shadows. Dance, pose or wiggle and watch your shadow move with you. How many shadows are there when all of the lights are on?

Geo-Terraces

These are in the centre of the Grand Atrium. Unlike school and home, you don’t have to clean up your toys!

The Urban Streetscape Project

A collaborative effort to showcase the iconic features of our Region in a fun and interactive way! Create your own sound at The Beat Goes On and interact with images on the floor and wall!

Sol LeWitt Art Installation

Along our Atrium staircase you can discover an art piece unlike any other: white Styrofoam overtop a dark blue wall. This piece, by renowned American artist Sol LeWitt, is said to resemble cracking ice, and exemplifies the unique design he was known for.

Why open THEMUSEUM newsletters?

"Just scanning the themes here, I think you and the programming team should be very proud of the relevance of your institution to so many of the important conversations of our time. Please keep doing what you’re doing!"
