We are huge fan of the Science Museum. We are a family with young children always looking for activities to let energy spread. It is known that when children are being interactive that they are learning. The Wonderlab at the Science Museum is like a large scientific playground, where kids can play and learn at the same time.
Wonderlab Science Museum: where you can really touch the science
Open in October 2016 and located at the third floor of the Science Museum, Wonderlab is the new Statoil gallery for children, rich of try-it-yourself science experiences. Consider to spend here at least half of the day, but if it’s your first time at the Science Museum (you can read more about it in this post), so consider a whole day for both.
There are seven zones at the ‘lab’, for each physical phenomenon of Nature: Matter, Sound, Maths, Electricity, Forces, Light and Space.
There are many live experiments during the day at the chemistry bar. We really enjoyed the nitrogen one!
There is also an area with tables and wood blocks for a quieter moment.
There are from theremin bollards to metal prongs, but the highlight for a four-year-old visitor is the giant friction slides!
