The Ancient Greeks saw the world comprised of four elements – Earth, Air, Fire and Water (with philosopher Aristotle throwing in a fifth, Aether, for good measure) that were thought to explain the nature and complexity of all matter and to be essential to life. Times have changed. We now have atomic theory, with atoms classified into more than a hundred chemical elements. Yet echoes of the old theory reverberate to this day and scientists admit we still don’t know everything; there is still some mystery in our world.
Interact with the elements on this magical multisensory journey of discovery through an intriguing, immersive digital world in which magic meets alchemy and alchemy meets science. Play, discover and create with your fellow explorers as you experience for yourself how a limited number of elements come together to create the almost infinite variety of our Universe.
Each session holds six people; if you're visiting in a smaller group you may share the experience with other visitors.
Suitable for 5+; under 14s must be accompanied by an adult. Latecomers will not be admitted.
