We look forward to welcoming you to our first exhibition, The Story of Time.


Where does the time go? Can time really fly? Is time just an illusion?


The answers to these questions can be found in The Story of Time. Guarded by the Tardis and a ‘Back to the Future’ DeLorean you will be able to meander through, interact with, listen, look, touch and generally play around with exhibits all about Time. Discover how the Higgs boson, often called the “God particle”, was first detected in the mock-up of CERN’s Large Hadron Collider, see a glacial calving in Greenland, tell the time with tree rings, witness the history of the universe displayed on a 30 metre time wall, and hear the sounds of deep space as you watch a time lapse video of the southern stars (Julia Davis, Consilience: As The World Turns).


Oriel Science’s mission is to bring the wonders of Science to the public through exhibitions on a scientific theme, which will inspire visitors to think and explore how science and technology impact their daily lives.
