Exhibitions and Planetarium Galleries
Esplora is located at Villa Bighi in Kalkara overlooking the Grand Harbour. The building was formerly used as a hospital by the Royal Navy. It will consist of a number of buildings and outdoor spaces, all interconnected following an extensive restoration and development process. The buildings have undergone major restoration to house this project. NorthernLight has been commissioned by the Malta Council for Science and Technology to design the main exhibitions and planetarium galleries, featuring over 100 interactive exhibits.
Esplora embraces a ‘free choice’ learning environment and will be a family orientated and collaborative fun experience. Esplora offers the opportunity to discover and understand science through a series of hands-on experiences and phenomena – related exhibits. In this way, it will communicate the importance of the scientific processes: consisting of questioning, predicting, experimenting, analyzing and making conclusions. Visitors to Esplora will enjoy a full day out exploring indoor and outdoor exhibitions, attending science themed workshops, enjoying Planetarium shows and taking a break in our Café.
