The exhibition features flashing lights and rapid colour changes which may trigger epileptic episodes or lead to the loss of consciousness in photosensitive persons. Similar symptoms may also appear in non-epileptic persons and individuals with no history of photogenic seizures. If you or your family member exhibit sensitivity to flashing lights, please contact your doctor before visiting the Centre.
The exhibition offers visitors opportunities to perform chemistry experiments. The chemical agents involved may trigger allergic reactions. Please exercise caution if you are prone to allergic reactions. Use the protective gloves and eye protection available at each station or refrain from performing the experiments on your own and ask the staff for help.
Radio waves and magnetic fields
Electronic devices at the exhibition may emit radio waves and magnetic fields. These may interfere with the operation of other electronic devices, such as pacemakers.
One area at the exhibition allows visitors to perform an experiment involving a heating plate. Please exercise caution to avoid the risk of injury. Should any alarming symptoms arise, ask the staff for help.
The staff will help you find the nearest exit or direct you to an area where you can safely wait for medical help to arrive.
