Exhibition Details

Exhibition Name:

Sonic Sensation


Experience our sonic world and the sensation of being surrounded by sounds in this interactive exhibition. Sonic Sensation presents a fun, informative opportunity to explore sound in our environment. Experiment with pitch, test your hearing, make a movie soundtrack, and step into the ever-popular "Scream Chamber"!

Learn about the anatomy and physics of how we hear, find out about decibels, amplitude, frequency, pitch, sound waves, and what we can do to protect our hearing. Sort high and low pitches by hitting colored bells, create sounds by conducting an Invisible Orchestra, and launch a billiard ball to show how sound hitting our eardrums sends signals to our brains. Measure the frequency of sounds, match mystery sounds, and try to find hidden cat and cricket in kitchen cupboards by listening (no peeking!). Learn how we hear, and how you can protect your hearing for life.
