Experimentations and experimenting both start from everyday experience. How does a battery work? What is lightning? This exhibition shows how scientific and technological breakthroughs have answered questions like these and changed many of our ideas about everyday phenomena.

Discover marvellous machines, get creative in the Tinkering Zone, get zapped in the electric chair, play with sound and light waves.
