Pattern Pod

Pattern Pod is an amazing multi-sensory area for children under 8 years old.

In Pattern Pod, children can explore water ripples without getting their feet wet, create symmetrical images on touch screens, follow robot trails and much more. Fun, interactive exhibits encourage them to recognise and copy patterns—or create entirely new ones of their own.

Like scientists, children explore the world by trying to make predictions about events happening around them. It’s often easier to make these predictions if these events repeat themselves or if there is a pattern to them.

Visit Pattern Pod on the ground floor of the museum—it’s a fun and stimulating place where children can learn through play to develop their science skills.


Please note, if you are visiting from 22 September you will no longer need to pre-book a free ticket to visit Pattern Pod. We will honour pre-booked tickets—please arrive at your allotted time and we will grant you access. For further information see our FAQs.
