Let there be light!

Step out of the darkness and into this hands-on, interactive exhibition where visitors can play with light.

Can you sneak past a laser light security block? Why not step inside a giant kaleidoscope! You can even “draw” with infrared “paint”, or make your own powerful telescope!

Playing with Light explores our big bright world and the many ways in which science and physics create light!
