Light Lab

Time to get arty this winter and discover the dazzling world of light.

It is open daily during Vivid (until 8 June) 5pm – 9pm (except Friday 29 May), and 10am – 9pm weekends.

Light Lab is not an exhibition but an activity space designed for children to creatively explore and play with the properties of light.

Weekends: 10am–4pm
Selected evenings during Vivid Sydney

Play now, learn now!
