Rutherford's Den

Television, radio, sonar and telephones – just some of the great inventions we enjoy today thanks to the scientific discoveries made by Ernest, Lord Rutherford and his peers.  Step inside Rutherford’s Den and enjoy fun, hands-on activities as you learn about science in the actual rooms where Rutherford studied. The space has been transformed with cutting-edge technology - walk-in multi-sensory experiences, a digital blackboard and interactive screens are just some of its new, high-tech features.
