Earth Science Gallery opens Apr 23

The Science Museum’s new Earth Science Gallery will open tomorrow, marking the museum’s 30th anniversary and supporting Earth Day.   The gallery features about 30 sets of interactive exhibits, models and installations for visitors to better understand the causes of natural phenomena.   Comprising four areas, the new permanent gallery guides visitors through the secrets underneath the Earth’s crust, and illustrates how its internal and external forces lead to drastic natural phenomena such as volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, tsunamis and typhoons.   Science Museum Director Paulina Chan recommended that visitors try out the typhoon simulator to experience the intensity of winds reaching approximately 120km per hour.   Ms Chan also said the Earthquake Preparedness Agency computer game could provide people with knowledge that may help save their lives.   "There are a lot of scenarios, you need to choose the right things to do to protect yourself in an earthquake, it will be a very good tip for you."   Hong Kong’s breathtaking geology is also featured at the gallery through its display of rock specimens from different geological ages, such as samples from the hexagonal rock columns in the High Island region, part of the Hong Kong UNESCO Global Geopark.   Ms Chan hopes the gallery will help visitors understand more about nature.   “Learning Earth’s history is always fascinating. I think this gallery will let visitors know about the science of the Earth.   “This kind of knowledge can help us understand nature and also let us know how to protect our nature, our blue planet.”   Visitors to the museum will need to use hand sanitiser and will be subject to temperature checks before admission. They also need to wear their own masks.   Children under 12 will only be allowed to enter the venue when accompanied by an adult.   Call 2732 3232 for enquiries.
