Wonderlab is the newest and most interactive exhibition at the Science Museum. It gives visitors the chance to experiment with more than 50 different models and objects, including a large-scale model of the solar system, a showspace theatre and slides.

Aiming to create an immersive playground experience, the space is spread across seven different zones: Light, Matter, Space, Sound, Maths, Electricity and Forces. Each one of the zones gives the opportunity to be part of a real scientific experiment, to get creative, use your skills and discover new things. You can order a ‘life experiment’ at the Chemistry Bar or go to the demonstration shows at the theatre.

The Light exhibition features an Infinity Mirror Box, creating the illusion of an endless space, a Colour Room which experiments with how light changes the colour of different objects and a Heat Camera.

Once inside the exhibition you can create flowing mist and cloud rings, experiment with sound waves and magnetic liquid, see small-scale lighting strike, or try to capture the moment of a droplet splashing into water.
