Make a booking

Written notice of cancellation is required and must be made at Book Canberra Excursions.

Large groups

Kspace bookings can accommodate up to 60 students, with 12 students starting the experience about every 10 minutes.

However, we suggest splitting large groups into two smaller ones – ideally comprising multiples of 12. One group can visit Kspace while the other explores the Museum’s galleries.

Kspace offers a range of options for visitors with hearing or mobility impairments.

Augmented hearing units are available for use with our headsets or as neck loops that can be used with hearing aids.

Portable pod controllers are available for visitors in a wheelchair or with limited mobility.

Visitor access guides provide a detailed description of the experience, including storyboards for each of the eight Kspace scenes. These free, print guides are available for parents and carers, or children of reading age who are unable to hear audio instructions during the game. They are also useful for children who have learning difficulties and parents or carers who like to prepare for their visit before arriving at the Museum.

Speak with a Visitor Services Host when you arrive at Kspace about accessing these options.
