Kid's eye view: Sony Explora Science Museum

Toni Hutchison from Beanstalk International Bilingual School and Kindergarten reviews the Sony Explora Science Museum for us!

The museum shows us how light and sound work in different ways over three floors. The first floor is about lights, the second floor is a night zoo thought it is not open yet and the third floor is about sound. During my visit, I spent two-and-a-half hours exploring the different sections. There are various activities and I tried them all.

Most of the exhibits are in good condition but some weren’t working. I enjoyed exhibits like the colour light shadows and the hoop nightmares. I also had fun with the echo chamber, visual voice and the music metre. I learned about optical illusions where items placed in a box aren’t there when you touch them, as it is a concave lens creating the illusion. What I didn’t like was the ‘your-father’s-nose’ exhibit. You had to sit opposite your parent and you can see what facial features that you share with them. It sounds fun, but I was too short to sit on the chair!

Visitors are not allowed to take photos inside but there is an area where you can take photos on each floor. When you leave, they will print one for you. I recommend that all my friends go to this museum because it is an educational place for everyone!
