Look at food from plot to plate to palate with our interactive sensory adventure!
Get your tastebuds ready and play with your food with our exciting exhibition all about the yummy stuff!
Launched in 2014, made possible by a variety of funders, this exhibition is a sensory arcade chock-full of tasty exhibits and activity spaces, such as:
- Honey Factory - Dress up like a little bee, collect pollen and learn bees’ waggle dance
- Grinding Grain - Find out how much energy goes into your food - can you grind your own flour?
- RoboChef3000 - Converse with our robot chef and see if she can suggest the perfect recipe for you to try out
