Do you have what it takes to be a hero? How would you react in a high-pressure scenario with people’s lives at stake? ‘Rescue’ is a unique, hands-on exhibition that focuses on the science and technology of rescue scenarios and emergency services. ‘Rescue’ puts you in charge as you discover what it’s like to be involved in land, sea and air rescues. Take control of a full-size helicopter simulator to get a bird’s eye view of a rescue scene and use infrared cameras to look for heat signals.

What is light? How does it influence our daily life? How do we share it? Luminipolis explores the nature of light with a twist. Based on the concept of escape games, it invites visitors, as part of a team or as individual, to learn more about the science of light by solving riddles and collecting clues. But time is off the essence in this experience and visitors only have a set amount of time in order to collect the right answers and unlock the exit door of Luminopolis.
