Questacon’s Colour exhibition at Newcastle Museum extended due to popular demand

28 Jan 2021

Novocastrians need not travel interstate to experience the science-based fun offered by the capital’s most popular science museum. Questacon’s Colour exhibition at Newcastle Museum has been extended due to popular demand until 2 May 2021.

Colour is a special touring exhibition developed by Questacon - the National Science and Technology Centre in Canberra, that explores the science of colour and perception through more than 20 different interactive experiences, ranging from coloured bubbles to iridescent insects to colour illusions.

Visitors can explore how light influences colour and compare their perception of colour with family and friends. See glowing quantum nanomaterials that change their colour with crystal size. The exhibition shows the power colour has on the choices we make every day, and on our responses to the environment.

Set up in a COVID Safe space in the Supernova Gallery, tickets for Colour can be purchased through the Newcastle Museum’s website and cost $10 for adult, $5 for children aged three and over and $7 for concession card holders, while a family pass (two adults and two children) is $25.

Visitors should bring a mobile phone to enter the Museum using a QR code.
