Let there be light! Light is intrinsic to our lives, from natural phenomenon like rainbows to advanced technologies including communication, security and medicine, to the simple light bulb. 

Step out of the darkness and into Playing with Light. This full-body interactive exhibition explores our big bright, colourful world full of light, lasers and lenses. With over 22 interactive exhibits, Playing with Light explores the role light plays in our life and in our world.

  • Sneak past laser light security beams
  • Step inside a giant kaleidoscope
  • ‘Paint’ with infrared light
  • Freeze your shadow on a wall

These are just some of the exhibits that will delight your visual senses and test your ingenuity.

Prepare to be illuminated!
