Make a soap bubble which is so huge that you are able to stay inside it – and see how a tornado can occur within a bubble.
The Bubblearium is Experimentarium’s new soap bubble area where you can blow bubbles, large and small, discover the science behind soap bubbles or just sit down and enjoy the sight of all the bubbles.
The Bubblearium is divided into a light workshop, where you create bubbles and a dark laboratory, where you are able to study them.
In the middle of the exhibition you will find a seating area, where you can enjoy the sight of all the colourful, floating bubbles.
Below you will find af few of the many experiences in the Bubblearium:
Try making bubbles with your hands. With practice, you can make small bubbles with one hand – and large bubbles with both hands. You can grab one bubble and create a new one within another bubble.
By using our bubble tools, you can make lots of soap bubbles. We have tools for making bubbles in different sizes and shapes, so you are able to discover how the size and shape of the tool determines the sort of bubbles you make.
Here, you can be surrounded by a soap bubble and experience what it is like standing right inside it. You can even try closing the bubble above your head.
Have you ever noticed how a soap bubble reflects its surroundings? In the soap bubble, you are able to see the reflections of yourself and your surroundings. You will also notice that the bubble produces a mirror reflection. Perhaps you may even discover why some soap bubbles now and then contain many more colours than others?
At this light table, you can thoroughly examine soap bubbles and their colours by using different coloured lights. Watch how the colours of the bubble change with time as the liquid in the bubble evaporates and moves.
On our soap wall you will find stunning, coloured patterns. Try blowing the film and see what happens! You can also test how much you are able to shake the film before it breaks up.
Is it possible to make square bubbles? Yes, it is! In fact, you can make bubbles in all kinds of shapes simply by adding new bubbles which will connect and create new shapes.
