Tims ocean lab

How does a submarine actually work? How do we save our oceans from littering and toxins? How can a massive steel ship float? And how on earth can you use water to weigh a potato?

The eleven stations in the ocean lab present a practical way to learn about the sea, life at sea and our fragile marine environment. Once you have finished, you will know so much more about odd concepts such as density and friction. 

The ocean lab has been designed for all ages and is ideal for exploring together across the generations. The lab is open to visitors when the museum is open, and we also conduct daily guide-led experiments linked to the ocean lab. Keep a look out on the daily programme for Virvelina and Tim’s cheeky, entertaining experiment show – all inquiring, experimental minds are welcome!
