This summer, Hove Museum and Art Gallery hosts a family friendly exhibition and discovery of all things blue, featuring objects from Brighton Museums’ collections. Into the Blue is a journey of discovery in science, art and history. Using the blue objects as a starting point, explore themes inspired by the museum's Natural Science and Art collections and learn many weird and wonderful facts along the way.
How does blue feature in decoration, both for humans and animals? Why is the sky blue, and which creature has the best eyesight? Take a journey into history, science and art through birds and beasts, plants, rocks and reptiles. Explore the evolutionary story of birds, bugs and mammals to discover how creatures see in colour and which colours they see.
The exhibition features an innovative Sound Explorer; an audio-sensory interactive for visually impaired and blind visitors, offering object-specific audio using RNIB Pen Friend technology combined with tactile display objects.
The exhibition runs until 21 January 2014 and is free to enter.
