Galileo Galilei was an Italian natural philosopher, astronomer and mathematician who made fundamental contributions to the sciences of motion, astronomy, strength of materials and to the development of the scientific method. Through interactive exhibits we explore Galileo’s study of motion and his discoveries with the telescope, which paved the way for acceptance that the Sun is central in our planetary system.
This exhibition allows visitors to discover Galileo through interactive experiments. Developed by The Artisans of Florence, whose Da Vinci and Archimedes exhibitions we have shown previously, this exhibition is ideal for children, families, and school groups, keen to experience science hands on. Waikato Museum is pleased to be the first venue in the world to showcase this latest exhibition.
