Museum brought to life

BUDDING scientists can discover the wonders of life at a fascinating exhibition.

Scores of people have been taking part in experiments at the Life exhibition, in the Museum of Hartlepool, in Jackson Dock’s Maritime Experience.

The interactive display is full of quirky tests for people to enjoy, such as looking at life through the eyes of an animal and testing balance and measuring decision-making time.

Visitors can also find out whether they are colour blind, get their hands on a full-size skeleton and find out how quickly their brain can learn a new skill.

The museum is open daily from 10am to 5pm and the exhibition will run until Sunday, July 10.
