Our permanent indoor exhibits explore the exciting worlds of Forces, Earth and Beyond, Light and Colour plus Astronomy and Time. All our exhibits are fully interactive so have a play and find out what they do. Each exhibit has an easy to read explainer telling you more about the exhibit and often relating it to everyday objects.
Explore the basic principles that influence our everyday lives.
From the microscopic level of everyday things to the Solar System and beyond!
A darkened space where the exhibits have surprising outcomes.
Astronomy and Time are represented throughout the exhibitions.
