MOD.

Take a walk or jump on the tram down North Terrace and you'll find yourself at MOD. by the University of South Australia — a futuristic museum of discovery, a place to be and be inspired.

While the primary purpose of MOD. is to engage young people in science, technology and design, its doors are open to all and everyone is welcome – young and old.

MOD. is Australia's boldest, and South Australia's only, interactive public science and creativity space. It's a free science experience that brings the general public, researchers, students and industry together to interact, learn and be inspired.

Art and science collide over two levels, offering seven purpose-built gallery areas, a cafe, shop and lecture theatre. It sits on the first two floors of the University of South Australia's new Health Innovation Building on North Terrace and features a room-sized display that shows planetary data on a sphere surrounded by touchscreens.

Rundle Mall is home to a bronze sculpture of a group of life-sized pigs, officially known as 'A Day Out' by Marguerite Derricourt.
