Banbury Museum announces an exciting hands-on exhibition from Science Projects of London: Good Vibrations, The Science of Sound.

Sound surrounds us. Noise bombards our ears. Do you know how sound is made and how it travels? It’s all due to vibrations, of course! Banbury Museum presents a unique opportunity to experiment with sound. Play strange musical instruments, such as the light lyre with its light beams instead of strings. Move your hands close to two aerials to play with another instrument, the theremin. Discover how your vocal cords work, watch your voice on a computer screen, and finally, puzzle your brain with sound illusions.

Dale Johnston of Banbury Museum commented, “We look forward to visitors of all ages having fun with the hands-on experiments, discovering more about the sonic world around them.

In addition, the launch of Good Vibrations coincides with the Oxfordshire Science Festival (16-21 June). The festival is an opportunity to explore the exciting research and creativity in and around Oxford. It brings together researchers, journalists, and other experts in a range of locations. It aims to share thought-provoking and innovative ideas with the public as a result.

The exhibition is open Monday – Saturday 10am-5pm until 2 September.
