Mirrors are magic!
Prepare to be dazzled as Mirror Magic takes you beyond the looking glass and into the crazy back-to-front, upside-down world of reflections and light.
The incredible properties of mirrors inspire people from all walks of life. Magicians use them to create illusions… scientists use them to find out how the world works… and artists use them to explore the nature of reality. Mirrors are quite magical, and this exhibition allows you to explore some of their amazing properties and many uses in fun and exciting ways.
Take up the challenge to build your own periscope, peer through a giant kaleidoscope and have fun learning together.
