Museum of the Great Southern

Throughout the year the Discovery Centre hosts a range of interactive, engaging and hands-on programs that are always changing, and always fun!

Through the Lens

Through the Lens Bring tiny objects into focus under our microscope and observe how different materials react under ultraviolet light. Put our Camera Lucida optical device to the test and see if you can draw like masters from the past. Explore the way the human eye sees and records the world around us through a series of interactives and displays that examine light, colour, art and science.

All ages. Free Entry. 10am - 4pm. No bookings required.
