The science and art of weather

The weather influences our daily life, our culture and our mood. But do we really understand the science behind it? 

In this era of climate change, where extreme events collide, the science of weather has become a key to understanding the present and preparing for the future. 

Climb in altitude and find yourself in the middle of a storm cell. Simulate climate change and see what happens when you control solar radiation and greenhouse gases. Explore the different facets of weather by examining causes behind different weather patterns, consequences and the tools available to scientists to predict its many variables. Discover the meaning of these weather-related words we hear so often: probability, humidity, wind, storm, station, advisory, watch, warning, temperature, pressure and so much more. 

Come and enjoy an immersive experience in surroundings that evoke movement and energy transmission—two concepts that are central to understanding the science of weather.

This is not an Umbrella is much more than just an exhibition on weather, as it also looks at the links between nature and culture through the lens of weather. Come visit. Rain or shine!
