This exhibition won’t just get you moving. It will make you want to kick, jump, shout, and dance about!
Move and Play! challenges visitors to compete and cooperate, to play and have fun together. As they move — sometimes singly, sometimes in teams — visitors experiment with the latest technology and gain creative insights.
