Encouraging young minds to explore the mysteries of the universe, the museum is divided into three levels of interactive displays; The Past, The Present and The Future. Taking in everything from archaeology to space travel, the centre first urges children to dig through ‘The Past’ on the lower level, offering displays on archaeology, geology and paleontology. The Present provides an introduction to the natural environment and urban planning that includes hands-on activities, while the top floor presents The Future. Focusing on science and space exploration, the exciting exhibits of The Future explore technology and the future of civilisation.
The building itself serves as an example to visitors of sustainable building practices. An energy-efficient building, the museum features a number of sustainable solutions including solar arrays, geothermal energy, natural lighting and LED fixtures.
The open and light filled floor plan connects the outside areas of the building seamlessly, leading the learning outdoors. A science playground and climbing wall, amphitheatre and rain garden, along with a green roof that operates as insulation for the building, are but some of the sustainable features that grace the outside of the museum and encourages further learning through interactive play.
