Black holes, dark matter, spiral nebulae, exoplanets, gravitational waves, big bang, the multiverse — the countless objects and cosmic phenomena that shape our universe offer many sources of inspiration for literature, music, visual and live arts.

Since the dawn of humankind, the universe has been the deepest source of wonder. What is our place in this vast expanse of space? How did the cosmic evolution enfold? Why does the universe exist at all?
This “Cosmos” exhibition re-creates interactive scenes based on concepts or hidden physical laws found by scientists like Albert Einstein, Felix Klein, David Hilbert, Hendrik Lorentz, Erwin Schrodinger and Stephen Hawking.
Using holographic projection, mirrors and somatosensory technologies, the exhibition has 11 zones for visitors to explore: “Time Travel,” “Schroedinger’s Box,” “Double-slit Experiment,” “Klein Conjecture,” “Membrane Theory,” “Wave Function Collapse,” “Hilbert Space,” “Kepler’s View of the Galaxy,” “Meta-Universe,” “Lorentzian Wormholes” and “The Universe in a Nutshell.”
