Experiment – Groups

Explore science in action in Experiment, our free interactive gallery.

Play with materials to build sturdy bridges and tall towers. Discover whether you're strong enough to lift a car with one hand and find out more about friction with the slippery sphere.  

Make music with your body and learn about sound waves. Create glow-in-the-dark art, test your senses and tell stories with shadow puppets.

Balance balls in mid-air, activate your heat vision with our thermal camera and race bubbles as you find out more about viscosity. 

What will you build, sense and discover?

Please note: Experiment is our most interactive gallery. You can schedule 30 minutes for this gallery on your itinerary, but you are welcome to explore it at any time, for as long as you like.

The gallery will also be open to other groups and general visitors.
