“Coached” tour

This tour is geared toward understanding the concept of time in the world of sport. How is sport measured? How has 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”. Recommended age: 10 +
