Energy: fuelling the future

Thought-provoking and interactive, this gallery is a great place for children age 7–14 (and their teachers and families) to explore how energy powers every aspect of their lives.

Where does energy come from? What does electricity actually feel like? And what on Earth is a fossil fuel? Visitors can leave their thoughts about energy for others to see on the Energy Ring, a huge interactive sculpture suspended in the air.

From giant spinning drums to dance-floor footpads, come to this exciting hands-on gallery to discover more about energy.
