Commemorating the 100th anniversary of Albert Einstein's Nobel Prize, this exhibition looks at the imaginary world that gave birth to Einstein's theories, the accepted conventional wisdom of the time, and the impact of his discoveries. Einstein, who structured dynamic theories from various hypotheses, was no doubt able to come up with such unparalleled, flexible and unorthodox hypotheses because his imagination was his starting point. From the world inside Einstein's head, this special exhibition will inspire the "spirit of inquiry" and the "ability to view things with wonder," the starting point of science itself, in children and adults alike.
