Summer at the Museums: Toying with science

Monday 31st July, 11.00 - 13.00, 14.00 - 16.00

Over the years, toy-makers have sneakily snuck science into their toys and games, making them exciting, unusual and experimental and helping us learn more about the world. Come and play with past and present science toys in our new Discover gallery and make your own to take home! This event repeats on the 14th August (see below).

Families, 3+. Drop-in. Free.

Open Cambridge: Exploring deep history

Friday 8th September, 10am - 4pm

Visit the Whipple Museum and Library for a special joint display of books, images and instruments that reflect how humans have studied the earth and its history over time. From works interpreting fossil bones to artistic impressions of geological strata, this will be the first opportunity to view fascinating items from a recent donation by one of the world's foremost historians of the geological sciences. Join us on a mind-expanding journey into the pre-human era of 'deep time'.

Ages 16+, drop in, free.
