Fire Exhibition

Fire Exhibition

Humans have been using fire long before they understood how it works, and the taming of the flames has had great impacts throughout the history of our civilisations. From camp fires used to cook food and keep away wild animals, we moved on to oil lamps and candles for lighting, smoke signals for communication, and flame throwers and incendiary bombs for warfare.

The Fire Exhibition touches on all of those and more. What is fire, and what happens when something burns? How do matches, lighters and firecrackers work? What does fire have to do with cannons, explosives and car engines? And how does nature depend on fire? Find the answers at the Fire exhibition.
