Oct 26, 2020
The Museu de les Ciències is celebrating its 20th anniversary this coming 13 November, on account of which the Ciutat de les Arts i les Ciències has prepared special programming including guided tours, the free exhibition '20 amb tu, contigo, with you' and publication of a commemorative catalogue.
Tickets to the Museu de les Ciències will be discounted 20 percent for the entire month of November. Also planned for this time is lighting the building up in green from 8pm.
In addition to the 20 percent discount on tickets, people visiting the Museu in November will be able to enjoy special tours, which will be included in the ticket price.They will be welcoming presentations of about 20 minutes length, one in the morning and another in the afternoon. The group, guided by Museu staff, will tour some of the Museu’s main points of interest in such a way that the participants can later follow an itinerary suited to their tastes.
Standing out among the new features is the exhibition 'Play. Science and music' where the public will find areas with interactive and multimedia experiences regarding the creative and cognitive processes of music, as well as a collection of more than 200 instruments from different cultures and eras. Also, the new scientific show 'High voltage' in the Science Theatre and the amazing Tesla coil, a transformer with spectacular effects such as the more than metre-long bolts of electricity it produces. Several sessions are conducted throughout the day, and it is included in the ticket to the Museu.
Another initiative undertaken is the invitation of everyone who has turned 20 in 2020 to have a free ticket to the Museu de les Ciències and who can participate in the drawing for a mobile phone.
"20 amb tu, contigo, with you"
On 13 November the Museu de les Ciències turns 20. As a result, "20 amb tu, contigo, with you", a journey through those two decades of the popularisation of science and commitment to culture, has been created. The showing recalls what life was like in the year 2000. The beginning of a new millennium, a new century and decade in which we began to carry our first mobile phones, life exited without the internet and the International Space Station was under construction.
"20 amb tu, contigo, with you" presents, time-capsule style, the most important items that have defined the Museu de les Ciències as a model of interactive science. A way of seeing its historical development through the pieces and modules of different exhibitions which have provided understanding of scientific phenomena through experimentation and entertainment during those 20 years. In addition, with a computer program, visitors can fashion a new time capsule that will be opened in 2040.
