You have reached the main content region of the page.

Exhibition overview

Welcome to a place where you can dive deep into the science behind some of the changes we are seeing in our surroundings. Experience how the smallest of actions can have a big impact on the world around you. Our exhibits are both thought-provoking and fully interactive, so you can find new answers to big questions. This is where you play to change the game.

In nature, everything is connected – air, land, water. As you explore Earth Matters, look out for the connections along the way. Solve complex challenges and push your own ideas to new heights. Then rethink what the future could look like.

Note that due to capacity restrictions, online bookings are essential. We advise you to plan ahead to avoid disappointment.
