What will you build, sense and discover? Play and explore science in action in Experiment, our free interactive gallery designed for the whole family to enjoy together.

Build sturdy bridges and tall towers, make music with your body and discover whether you’re strong enough to lift a car with one hand.  

Test your senses and flex your superpowers. Try to see through walls and find out how you can shake hands with yourself. Play songs on musical pipes and get creative with glow-in-the-dark art. 

Plus, don’t miss our new interactives in this revamped gallery. Experience Heat Vision with our thermal camera, play with magnetic art and throw some shapes to tell stories with our shadow wall.
