Gallery Summary

Stare into the mirror of infinity, spin the turbulence zone, or watch  your own skeleton ride a bike. Some of the most amazing facts about science in everyday life are explained in this fascinating interactive science gallery, where you are encouraged to see, hear, feel and smell science in action.

Skeleton 2010The new Experiment! includes old favourites such as the Mini, which can be lifted by a small child thanks to the simple power of gears, and the tornado machine, as well as up to 20 innovative new interactives.

Magnets!Be mesmerised by bubbles passing through giant columns of coloured liquids to demonstrate viscosity, see how many of the city's homes can be lit by using rubbish as power, and measure your reactions against the speed of light or the flapping of a fly's wings.

Please note that school groups and parties of more than 10 people must pre-book a visit to Experiment!. Go to the learning section of this website for more infomation.
