This exhibition, also targeting four year olds and under, allows children to develop their mathematical and literacy skills through a number of hands-on experiences. This is where kids can develop their color skills by ‘purchasing’ goods at the grocery store, learn to tell the time by moving the hands on the clock tower and enjoy a wide range of books.
A permanent exhibition for all ages, where everyone discovers the amazing powers of water. City Splash provides the perfect aquatic experience to visitors, allowing them to paint with water, race boats down a stream and explore dimensions such as buoyancy, currents and energy. This exhibition runs every Tuesday to Sunday afternoon, weather permitting.
