Rainbow interactive experiments – daily shows in the round room. Join our fantastic volunteers as they make rainbows in the Round Room! 

Take part in super fun object handing where we have kaleidoscopes and rainbow glasses. Look through these and see artwork in our iconic Round Room in a different way. Experiment and look through different sheets of coloured materials, or mix them together to make new colours.

We are also making rainbows using prisms! Use our special crystals to reflect and change light, breaking it down into different colours to make rainbows on the table or in your hands. 

 Fun, free and a great way to see the gallery through a rainbow.

Our brilliant volunteers will be on hand to make rainbows with you, a great way to start your adventure in the museum – you will find lots more rainbow colours throughout our art and history galleries! Try to find a special artwork called “Fragment of a Rainbow VI” , 2011 by Gary Hume, its high above you in the gallery and really cool.

From Monday 19th to Friday 23rd February at 11.00am - 1.00pm and 2.00pm – 4.00pm.

Free, drop in. In the Round Room.
