Join us at the Museums Quarter this Easter for a celebration of science. We’ve teamed up with the University of Hull, Explorer Dome, Science Made Simple, and more for an exciting 2-day Science Spectacular packed full of free bookable and drop in activities for all the family to enjoy.
Ever wondered if it’s possible to build Iron Man’s Suit? Or how superheroes fly? These are some of the questions the University of Hull and their Superhero Science Show will look to answer.
The Science of Sport Show will invite you to limber up and get involved as they explore how we balance, what happens when a ball bounces and why things that spin are so important in sport.
The Explorer Dome, ‘The Wonder of Space’ science show will see visitors discover a world of planets, stars, galaxies, and black holes, explore the life and death of stars and discuss the future of transport and human space travel!
As well as free ticketed science shows there will be a host of free drop-in activities including the paper plane challenge, fossil making fun, the science of wind energy, and science busker David Price.
Journey back 235 million years at the Museums Quarter in Hull's Old Town to encounter sea monsters, Romans and a life-sized woolly mammoth at the Hull and East Riding Museum of Archaeology. Streetlife Museum of Transport brings history to life with all the sights, sounds and smells of the past. The authentic scenes invite you to climb on, get in and explore. Visit the birthplace of William Wilberforce and find out about the transatlantic slave trade in Wilberforce House, re-opened in 2007 following a £1.6 million redevelopment.
