The Universe in You

Stardust: The Universe in You is designed specifically for curious minds, illuminating the intricate connections within the universe.

Discover the marvels of the universe and the bonds that connect us through scientific concepts, hands-on exploration, and endless play.

Exhibition Sections:

Introduction: Where Did it All Begin?
The introductory area grounds visitors in the idea that we, in the present day, are connected to the universe and its evolution, going back to the Big Bang.
