The Príncipe Felipe Science Museum celebrates its 7th anniversary with an open day conference

Nov 10, 2007

The Príncipe Felipe Science Museum is, next Tuesday 13th November, to celebrate its seventh anniversary. Entrance to its installations will, as a result, be free of charge. The second of the City of Arts and Sciences’ buildings to be opened to the public, it was built with the aim of arousing curiosity and the critical spirit by endeavouring to surprise and delight the public through the contents that it provides.  
The Príncipe Felipe Science Museum celebrates its 7th anniversary with an open day conference Over the last seven years, the Science Museum has played host to numerous exhibitions, workshops and all kinds of activities related to scientific education and dissemination, as well as maintaining close collaboration with the main scientific museums throughout the world. All of this has been backed up by a significant public response, with more than 20 million visitors.

Every year the Science Museum puts on a new programme including interactive contents of a scientific nature. Hence, in 2007, the centre hosted various exhibitions such as “The Materials of Success” on science and sport, “Swiss Design Now”, or “We look after your quality of life” on biomechanics, displays such as “Titanic the exhibition”, and activities such as the plays of Scientific Theatre and the new interactive workshops of “Science on Stage”, aimed at robotics.

Furthermore, over these years, the Science Museum has become an outstanding forum for holding scientific congresses and a leading international centre for hosting important meetings such as the 5th Euro-Mediterranean Summit, the Astrophysics Congress “100 Years of Supernova”, the Meeting on Desertification in the Mediterranean Region, or the 57th International Congress on Astronautics, among many others.

In this way, and coinciding with the celebration of the 7th anniversary of the Príncipe Felipe Science Museum, its installations will play host, from tomorrow, Monday 12th November until next Saturday 17th November, to the 27th Plenary Session of the Intergovernmental Panel of Experts on Climate Change of the United Nations, a meeting that will bring together more than 2,500 scientists from more than a hundred countries.
