WARNING - NO NEW USER OR EXHIBITION ON THIS PLATFORM FROM 15 MARCH 2016
Ecsite, the Europen network for science centres and museums, will be entirely redesigning and upgrading the platform in the next few weeks.

The exhibition covers five themes: starting from Einstein’s childhood and the classical mechanics concepts that young Albert devoted his thoughts to at the end of the nineteenth century, to end up with general relativity . The topics covered include waves, light, electromagnetism, quantum mechanics, brownian motion and special relativity, all presented in the interactive and playful style of the museum with many exhibits and pleasant texts that anyone can understand.
“Surprise, the world can be interesting without colour.”
“Thank you for the impressions which have shown me a lot, and what difficulties there are if you can’t see.”
“An impressive experience which moves seeing into a different dimension.”
“The exhibition is an excellent contribution when it comes to dealing with disability. I got a lot out of it. A successful change of perspective.”
“Thank you very much. I was afraid when I went in, and found I could relax in a dark world.”
