The Australian Academy of Science's Shine Dome and its custom-designed furniture were created to reflect the inquiring and innovative nature of science. It was the first Canberra building to be added to the National Heritage List for its historical and architectural significance.

A Canberra landmark since its construction in 1959, the Shine Dome has received numerous awards and is one of seven projects the Royal Australian Institute of Architects has nominated to the World Register of Significant Twentieth Century Architecture.

While the exterior of this iconic building is easily accessible, currently the only way to experience the Shine Dome interior is to attend one of the talks in the Australian Academy of Science's Public Speaker Series. Take the opportunity to engage with scientists, academics and like minded individuals and expand your view of the universe.

The Shine Dome is available for hire.
