Kspace redevelopment

Robot time machines!

Work has begun on the design and development of a new on-site interactive digital experience for children and families to replace the current Kspace gallery at the Museum.

The new experience will involve visitors building their own robot to travel back in time to a mystery place in Australia’s history. Here visitors will receive a mission, each unique to the time and place they have been transported to, and they will need to work together with team-mates to complete their mission before their time runs out and they’re transported back to the Museum.

Why change?

Kspace is a very popular attraction for our young visitors and it’s had a long life, having been here since the Museum opened its doors in 2001. However, with its age it’s become increasingly difficult to maintain and the time has come time for it to be re-imagined and renewed.

We’re thrilled that we’ve been able to prioritise work to redevelop Kspace in to a new and improved experience which utilises current and emerging technology, while also allowing us to more closely relate the experience to the themes and content of the Museum.

We're also excited by the reactions of children to our emerging concept. It's going to be good fun!

We’ll have a lot more to say about Kspace over the coming months. The best way to keep up is to follow the Kspace posts on our blog.
