Apex association

Over the last 20 years Apex has developed a unique expertise and competence in interactive sensory experiments. Smell, touch, taste… these fully interactive, unique and sophisticated exhibitions are entirely dedicated to each of the senses. Timeless, always relevant, well built, constantly renovated, completed and updated, they enjoy an exceptional life-span. These travelling exhibitions elicit curiosity and interest in discovery, fun and emotion, and are truly intergenerational and fit for all ages. Each exhibition also includes a small journey specially designed for 3 to 6-year-olds.

Apex is a Belgium-based association which designs and creates highly interactive and sensory travelling exhibitions:

“Your nose knows / Né pour sentir” “Keep in touch / Très toucher” “Matter of taste / A tous les goûts” As an autonomous, responsive and flexible organisation Apex adapts easily to any given exhibition condition. With appealing modules and concise texts, the exhibitions aim first and foremost at a sensory focus on enjoyment and personal experimentation. The experiments as well as the suggested visiting modes elicit visitors’ emotional responses and curiosity. Thanks to the quality and diversity of the topics covered, the exhibitions are tools of great educational value that can also be the core of larger events; we can propose a multitude of ideas for animations, workshops and conferences on the exhibition themes. Apex exhibitions are conceived and showcased in creative, appealing and inventive ways. Being intergenerational, fit for all ages and school grades, they provide an opportunity for hosting museums to attract an entirely new public. They all include a journey specially designed for 3 to 6-year-old children. They are also accessible to disabled persons, and can furthermore provide a fresh perspective on sensory impairment. They are translated into several languages and transcribed into Braille.

These exhibitions have been visited by more than 2 million people and have been a great success in museums all over Europe, including Brussels, Neuchâtel, Luxemburg, Leeuwarden, Nantes, Bordeaux, Marseilles, Le Havre, Bourges, the Palais de la Découverte in Paris and many centres of scientific culture in France as well as Spain, Portugal, Switzerland, Estonia, Guyana, and elsewhere.
