Science meets Fiction at Doctor Who: Worlds Of Wonder

The TARDIS is about to touch down in Wellington, New Zealand, for the exclusive Doctor Who: Worlds Of Wonder exhibition.

Artificial intelligence, DNA manipulation, and cloning are all real science, but fans of the BBC series Doctor Who will get to explore them through their favourite fictional world in a new exhibition coming to Tākina Wellington Convention and Exhibition Centre.

When the TARDIS touches down in Wellington, New Zealand, it will be the first time the Doctor Who: Worlds Of Wonder exhibition has left the United Kingdom since its inception.

Explore the eight zones of the exhibition, each with its own range of iconic props, sets, and resource materials from the world’s longest-running science fiction television show. Discover the true scientific discoveries and principles that have informed and inspired the most memorable scenes and characters. From the furthest stars to the depths of the oceans, you’ll be amazed by the knowledge and wonder on display. Highlights include the Tech Room, where you can examine the technological capabilities of the Doctor’s gadgets and gizmos, and the terrifying Monster Vault, where you’ll come face-to-face with the Doctor’s alien adversaries.

Best of all, the Doctor Who: Worlds Of Wonder exhibition answers the all-important age-old question for fans of the show: why is the TARDIS bigger on the inside?
