How chemistry affects our everyday lives.

Modern chemistry plays an essential role in our everyday lives in areas as diverse as sports and leisure, nutrition, cosmetics and construction. When it re-opens, the chemistry exhibition will illustrate the natural chemical processes in our surroundings and take a close and critical look at our chemical manipulation of the world. Some highlights: a diorama illustrating how forensic science helps to solve crimes; historical laboratories; special laboratory cabins where visitors can try out experiments for themselves.
