Kingston upon Thames Museum

Senses at Kingston Museum 5 May – 17 June 2017

Senses: Admission free

We use our senses all the time to help us understand the world around us – but what exactly are they doing for us and how are they doing it?

Feel, see, hear and smell your way around this interactive exhibition to discover how our senses help us and how they sometimes trick us. How do we see in 3D? How do we work out where sounds are coming from? What happens when we try to talk over a delayed play-back of our voice? Challenge your memory, balance and reactions. See how your own eye reacts to light. Test your hearing with an older person to find out how it changes as we age.
