National Museum of Emerging Science & Innovation


Museums & Attractions

Recommended Major venue


Upon entering, the visitor beholds a globe 6.5m (22ft) in diameter above the lobby, with 851,000 LEDs on its surface showing real-time global climatic changes. The museum holds interactive displays on robots, genetic discoveries, space and astronomy and, perhaps most bizarre of all, a model using springs and ball bearings to explain the operating principle of the internet. There are ample explanations in English, and a good gift shop.
