Beaker Street is a scientist-run social enterprise based in Tasmania.
Feel like playing with a microscope at a pub? Chatting about evolution with a world-leading scientist? Meeting some new and interesting people? 
You've come to the right place.
We host events, workshops, talks, discussions, and create interactive spaces where everyone is invited to participate in scientific discovery.
Every August for the Beaker Street festival, we turn the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery, and some of Hobart's most iconic spaces and places, into a scientific wonderland for adults. Want to learn more? Keep on scrollin'
The Beaker Street festival is a celebration of science and art in Tasmania.

"More engaging and interactive than anything I've done anywhere else in Australia. Especially leading a dancing, New Orleans-style jazz band into the museum, followed by a few hundred people."

Wondering what it's all about? Check out some photos and videos from past years, or peruse our packed 2019 program. Although we unfortunately have had to cancel our 2020 festival due to the Coronavirus crisis, Beaker Street is working on an exciting new project in collaboration with our incredible community of scientists and artists, which we will release later this year... Stay tuned! 
Beaker Street also runs workshops, pub talks, and other science events throughout the year. Join our mailing list below or like our Facebook page to stay up-to-date.
