This exhibition invites us to step inside the mirror and then return to our world and ask questions about reality. Inspired by Lewis Carroll's character, Alice will take us on a journey through the different displays hidden in this exhibition full of reflections, surprises and discoveries.
“Mirrors” is an imaginative way of helping people to understand that we can look at reality through different lenses, which is very conducive to scientific thought and can change how we perceive the world around us. Mirrors are the museographical object of this exhibition, which brings us to the realisation the important role that they play in different fields such as science, culture and life in general, in a completely interactive way.
With a spectacular entrance way, the exhibition invites visitors to quite literally step through the mirror. Starting from this point, we start out on journey through the exhibition, discovering these objects in their most accessible form: flat, curved and kaleidoscopic mirrors, as well as many other kinds, which will teach us about mathematical aspects and lead us to wonder about what is in their reflections. After this, using a human-scale kaleidoscope, we will go through to the other side of the mirror, where light takes centre stage and the way it interacts with mirrors allows us go to the Moon, navigating with a sextant or to see the light of the Big Bang. The exhibition ends with a surprise that will send us “flying” and encourage us to discover further surprises found in other areas of the museum.
