Illuminate: How Science Comes to Light

This exhibition is being held at the Museum at Inveresk and entry is free.

Illuminate is a brand new exhibition exploring the science behind the fastest traveller in the universe – light.

Ignite the senses and learn through hands-on interactive play. What is light, what can we do with it and how do we see?

In this vibrant festival-themed exhibition you will explore visual perception and illumination through colour, sound and action.

Learn how light behaves, such as how it reflects and refracts and what tools we’ve invented to harness it.
