Get hands on and see science brought to life in our free interactive gallery designed for the whole family to enjoy together.

Stare into the mirror of infinity, find out if you've got the strength to lift a Mini, and watch your own skeleton ride a bicycle.  

Be mesmerised by bubbles passing through giant columns of coloured liquids to demonstrate viscosity, see how many of the city's homes can be lit by using household waste as power, and measure your reactions against the speed of light. 

This is an interactive gallery. Please wash your hands or use the hand sanitiser provided regularly. Only use the interactives with members of your group. If you have any questions about our interactives, please check the FAQs.
