Exhibition spaces

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
