The following scientific exhibitions will immerse you into the world of science, allowing you to broaden your horizons and describe, define, investigate and ultimately (try to) understand the world in which we live and how it works.

Science is about understanding how things work and why, and the answers science has given us so far allowed us to survive and improve our lifestyle in the process, so I don’t think it’s exaggerated to say that science is the most important element of our existence.

Read on to see Top 10 Science Exhibitions listed on the Vastari Exhibitions and available for hire right now!

10. Galileo’s Telescope: The Instrument That Changed the World


A visit to Galileo’s Telescope is an exciting journey through time and space, showing the enormous impact the telescope had on seventeenth century science and society. The exhibition explores the history of the telescope and the life and work of Galileo, showing the instrument’s construction and the way Galileo himself used it to make observations. Using his telescope he managed to determine that the surface of the moon wasn’t as smooth as everyone thought, but instead had a rough denty surface!

9. Science and Splendour: Treasures from the court of King George III


The Science Museum brings one of the most comprehensive surviving assemblies of eighteenth century scientific instruments and apparatus - The King George III Collection. The set of instruments was commissioned by the king, where each apparatus had a set of instructions coming with it. Together, they present a striking illustration of the range of scientific interests during this period, and the skills of London’s instrument-makers. This exhibition of around 130 beautiful objects provides a glimpse into a crucial stage of science exploration and experimentation!

8. SEEING. What Are You Looking At?


Have you ever wondered how we see things the way we do? Are you curious about how we take in the visuals in an environment filled with strong sensory stimuli and how we interpret what we see? This exhibition will give you a chance to deepen your knowledge and discover how the brain shapes human senses that help us interpret the world by the means of interaction with artificial eyes, machines and optical illusions.

7. Planetary Pioneers


4.6 billion years ago, the Solar System was formed from a gravitational collapse of a giant molecular cloud. This interactive exhibition will enable you to discover the planets and stars as well as undiscovered life. It will allow you to put in perspective what you have known before about Earth and how it is related to the universe overall. Explore the geography, weather and biological specifics of each planet and its satellites!

6. Giant Mysterious Dinosaurs


The Jurassic period is known for its incredible flora and fauna. During that period, the vegetation was greener and more lush, allowing dinosaurs reach a size even larger than before. This exhibition is based on the research completed by German scientists and features sculptures from the favourite family classic “Jurassic Park”. In addition to dozens of fossils and skeletons, it features many children friendly activities.

5. Giants of the Ice Age


This exhibition explores the mystery behind the extinction of a range of species from Mammoths to ground sloths, introducing the audience to Neanderthals and the diverse fauna of the ancient animal kingdom. Hire this show to see the incredible original mammoth skeleton found in freezing Siberia as well as the renown baby mammoth Lyuba and invite audiences to learn more about the great era of existence on Earth.

4. Beyond Rubik’s Cube


40 years ago, Professor Erno Rubik invented something that still challenges humanity now. The legendary puzzle is now sold and known worldwide! This exhibition is highly interactive and allows the audience to engage with the puzzle and explore the fields of science, technology, engineering, mathematics and art, whilst discovering multiple ways of cracking the mystery.

3. MythBusters: The Explosive Exhibition


The popular show from the discovery channel “MythBusters” is known for its scientific experiments separating the truth from urban legends. This exhibition will allow you to not just see the end result, but actually see the process of trial and error. It is your chance to test most know urban legends for yourself!

2. Archimedes: The Art and Science of Invention


Archimedes, the great Greek philosopher, is known across the globe for his incredible work in the fields of chemistry, physics and most importantly mathematics. This exhibition provides an insight into how his research was carried out and how  he embarked on his journey of discovery, including his renown floating principle. Using video animations and interactive models this outstanding exhibition will allow the audience to broaden their horizons and join Archimedes on his journey through science.

1.National Geographic: Spinosaurus - The Lost Giant of the Cretaceous


Spinosaurus - the largest predatory dinosaur - at over 15 feet long, he is larger than the famous T-Rex. This dinosaur’s long lost remains were found and then shortly thereafter destroyed during the Second World War. National Geographic together with a group of palaeontologists embarked on a journey to find the remains once again! Invite visitors at your museum to explore the skeleton of the legendary dinosaur and a variety of other ancient fossils along with discovering the modern technology used by palaeontologist!
