The Sun - Living with Our Star

This is a Private Tour.

The exhibition’s curator will guide us to discover the incredible story of our closest star – the Sun – through fun hands-on experiences, unique objects, and stunning imagery in our latest exhibition.

Set at the centre of our solar system, the Sun’s brilliant light shapes our sense of time, our health and our environment. People have tried to harness its power and uncover its secrets since the dawn of civilisation.

From 3,000-year-old artefacts to upcoming space missions and even a nuclear fusion reactor, we will be led on a visual, action-packed journey that brings the science of the Sun to life.

Bask in sunlight on an indoor beach, try on historic sunglasses in a digital mirror, and watch the Sun rise around the world on a huge illuminated display as you explore the fascinating story of humankind’s relationship with our closest star.
