Experimentations and experimenting both start from everyday experience. Why does the freezer door stick? 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.

Explore the world, see its strangeness, witness science in action, find out the connections between things, and discover by doing. Come and experiment for yourself …

Experimentations lets you experiment with heat, light, chemistry, electricity and movement.
