Two ways to visit

1) “Coached” visit and workshop
This tour is geared toward understanding the concept of time in sport.  How is sport measured? How has measuring time influenced the rules of various events? How has the evolution of sport influenced how time is measured? What is an athlete’s time? How can a performance make time stand still?
The adventure continues in the Studio for a special workshop showing how time can be captured in an image. Participants can then compare photo finish and chronophotography techniques, and even experiment with the latter to create their own “moving pictures”.
Suggested age range: 9+ (subject to reservation)

2) Self-guided visit using a tablet
