The Museum of Futures is an interactive exhibition that highlights the role we all play in creating different futures. Future artefacts in themed sets tell of two possible futures: one where we tackle climate change and one where extreme climate has changed our way of life forever. 

Conceived by Claire Marshall in 2018 the foundation exhibition themed around the Future of Work was created in partnership with the City of Sydney for the Better Buildings Cup and produced with assistance from UTS.

Alberto Jimenez Tobia, Esther Bailey, Zoe Baker and Kimberley Camrass were instrumental in the production of this exhibition and the development of the Museum of Futures concept.

The Museum of Futures Workshops have been developed by Claire Marshall and Mel Rumble.
