Think Ahead

Think Ahead

What will our future be like?

What will our cities look like in the future? How will new material change our houses, cities and clothes? What will we eat? How will we use the space around Earth?

Think Ahead is a new permanent exhibition about advances in science and technology across ten themes - communication; medicine and health; music and sound; food; natural systems; transport; space; cities; daily life; and money. It will showcase more than 200 museum objects from the past, the present and the speculative future. Innovative technology will blend with hands-on experiences and inspire you to research, think creatively and share your ideas.

Think Ahead will show you

--> scale models of boats, planes and trains demonstrating changes in transport over the past 200 years and how it has transformed the world.
--> milestone advancements in medicine and health, including the da Vinci Surgical Robot
--> how the food we eat in the future will be different from what we eat today
--> future technological developments in music for the hearing impaired, as well as the evolution of new instruments like the laser harp
--> the layers of the city and how they interact, including transport, waste, water and energy systems
--> A prototype of the EN-V Xiao Pod Car from General Motors Holden, on display for the first time in Australia.
--> NAO, a humanoid robot that can display and detect emotions.

Interactive activities will allow you to

--> imagine upgrading your mind, organs, limbs and adding special features to your body
--> create a new city that can house more people yet include more green space and bikes
--> design your own future sneaker and your own future vehicle
--> tackle the challenge of future traffic in the VicRoads Traffic Management Interactive.
