Feel the Force at the Beacon Museum
Gravity is not the only force pulling you towards the Beacon Museum this weekend, as an innovative new science exhibition arrives- ready to make a big impact.
Push, pull, lift and drop your way through these totally interactive science experiments, as you learn more about how physical force affects our lives each day.
For those who like to push buttons, pull levers and generally entertain their idle thumbs, this is one not to miss. The exhibition also ties in with the educational curriculum and is a fantastic way to spur on the interest of younger generations.
Copeland residents who sign up for the Copeland Pass can still enter this fantastic exhibition for free, as well as the immersive Wycinanki exhibition in the harbour gallery which opened last week.
“There are so many ways that the sciences can be made a fun learning experience. These exhibits are a better way of understanding the boring stuff- the equations and the sums behind physics. Bringing the theory to life is what it’s all about”, said Alan Irwin- development manager at The Beacon Museum.
Feel the Force: Friday January 27 until March 5.
Wycinanki: Wednesday January 18 – Sunday March 19 2017
Half term in the Beacon Museum also promises to be a busy week, with lots going on to celebrate the arrival of the Norse Hoard display in the Beacon collection. But for adults especially, events will take place that offer something a little different.
Fancy getting your loved one a Valentine’s present to remember? Well what could be more romantic than two tickets to a Viking Murder Mystery Evening on February 24.
