Science Play “Water Wonder Play,” an exhibition that provides fun and creative experiences by exploring diverse traits of water.

Water is truly amazing. It flows freely wherever it goes,
and sometimes pours down refreshingly.
Water can change from ice to vapor,
and it sparkles brightly when it catches the light.

Playing with this ever-changing water might even make our thoughts and hearts more flexible.
<Water Wonder Play> engages you with all these different features of water through play,
fostering creativity and problem-solving skills. Play joyfully and feel the spark of creative ideas pouring out.

* The exhibition entry is based on the operating schedule.
* To fully enjoy the exhibition, visitors are recommended to bring a change of clothes or waterproof gowns.

In what ways will the exhibit help my child?

  • Physical Development Water activities foster sensory awareness, while manipulative activities using diverse tools (e.g. stacking blocks, putting ball into a hole) enhance hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills.
  • Cognitive Development The exhibition allows children to develop creative thinking and problem-solving skills by exploring and making logical deductions about various aspects of water (e.g. states of water, how water flows, cause-and-effect relationships).
  • Emotional Development The exhibition fosters self-control and confidence through exploration and trying an activity repeatedly and enhances social skills through collaborative interactions with others.

Tips for parents when playing with their children

  • 01

    Let your child choose! Allow your child to choose the activity they want to do.
  • 02

    Be Patient! Let your child take enough time to explore the exhibits.
  • 03

    Pique your child’s curiosity with questions! Stimulate your child’s interest in scientific exploration by asking questions. (e.g. How do you think water and steam are different? Can a ball be moved with the power of water?)
  • 04

    Give compliments! Boost your child’s self-esteem and confidence by providing positive assessments of their attempts to engage in the exploration, deduction, and problem-solving processes.
  • 05

    Play together! Actively participating in your child’s play as a companion rather than observing from afar will double the fun of your child’s museum experience!
