Discover the incredible story of the Sun in our new blockbuster exhibition.
From ancient myths to health and wellbeing, solar power and more, The Sun takes a closer look at our ever-changing relationship with our closest star.
See stunning objects, including an ancient Babylonian tablet, a prototype fusion reactor and even Jimmy Carter's solar panels from the White House. Watch the sun rise around the world, relax on our indoor beach, or strike a pose and try on sunglasses with our digital interactives.
The Sun exhibition is a multi-sensory feast. From feeling the warmth on the indoor beach to making the sun rise and set across the globe on an interactive feature, every corner entices and engages people of all ages.
