Interactive Museum "Lunarium" in Moscow
May 31, 2016 23:49

Lunarium is a place where you can carry out a number of scientific experiments, solve the secrets of black holes, contact with aliens, create your own tornado and learn at first hand that knowledge is gained through experiments and observation.

An interactive museum is a new educational method, which engages a visitor into direct interaction with the exhibits presented. This is the way Lunarium works. It consists of two sections, namely Exploring the Space  and Astronomy and Physics.

Visitors will see several dozens of exhibits, which explain varoius laws of physics and natural phenomena in an entertaining way. In the area of Astronomy and Physics anybody can feel like a real researcher: here you have a chance to artificially create a cloud or a tornado, generate electric energy, ride a space bicycle or calculate your body weight on some other planets. Foucault's pendulum will prove to all those doubting that the Earth is rotating around its pivot-center, and the device of tellurion will demonstrate the process of days and seasons' changing. Visitors will definitely be carried away by the exhibits like Plasma Sphere, Black Hole, Ferrofluid Hedgehog, and others.

The section Exploring the Space looks like a real space station with thematic compartments. Thus here you can go in for an interplanetary travel, visit a lunar laboratory, learn about the history of the Big Bang and properties of vacuum, observe the movement of space bodies through a telescope, rescue the Earth from a meteoric rain, communicate to aliens and even launch a rocket.

Each exhibit is supplied with an information plate explaining the principle of its action. In case of some difficulties or questions consultants will assist you right away.

Excursions are provided for organized groups. Visiting the museum will be interesting to both adults and children alike.

Open hours:
From 10 am to 9 pm every day except Tuesday.

The Lunarium interactive museum is located in Moscow Planetarium Museum at the address 5/1, Sadovaya-Kudrinskaya Street, next to the  Barricadnaya metro station, Moscow.
