Test your balance to see if you could be a tightrope walker at our exciting new exhibition, CIRCUS! Science Under the Big Top. This exciting exhibition is the perfect indoor activity for families with kids of all ages! 

Come learn the science behind balance, how your “moment of inertia” and your “centre of mass” affects your ability to walk a fine line. What happens when you add a pole? Who knows, with enough practice, you too could be like the famous tightrope walker The Great Blondin, who in 1860 did a tightrope trek across Niagara Falls on stilts!
