Robots – Then and Now

Journey into humanity’s 500-year obsession with robots with an intriguing, family-friendly exhibition.

We often think of robots as a modern invention, but humans have actually been harnessing the power of robotics for more than 500 years.

Come up close to our ongoing quest to reimagine ourselves as machines with this fascinating, family-friendly exhibition.

This work-in-progress story of building robots will take you from 16th Century mechanical automatons to some unsettling humanoids that will make you question what it means to be human.

Entry to the exhibition is included in your ticket for the Life Science Centre, which also features planetarium and science shows, 4D motion ride and hands-on experiments.
