Museon Move & Play

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. The 20 interactive exhibits also invite visitors to learn about the impact of physical exercise on their own bodies: at each unit they learn which senses and cognitive processes are being put to the test, and what physical skills they are developing.

The world population is growing, technology is advancing at lightning speed, we are all travelling more and most of us are almost permanently online. All this means that we are more and more one world. At the same time, we are increasingly aware of our influence on nature and climate, and of the great importance of our natural world. The United Nations is keen to use sustainable solutions to tackle the greatest global challenges. To do this, it has formulated 17 Sustainable Development Goals that it aims to achieve by 2030.

Both science centres were victims of a fire in recent years and decided to turn this common fate into a creative challenge. Through the exhibition, fire will be investigated in its ancient, contemporary and future meanings, as a friend of humanity, as a tool of conviviality and warmth, but also as a potential source of danger, and an agent of violence and destruction.
