This was an awe-inspiring experience, a multi-media presentation of the history of the Universe from the Big Bang through to our present human civilisation, engaging us on every level.
We particularly enjoyed the notice on the wall just before we entered the exhibition: "This is your last opportunity to use the toilet for the next 450 million years. Enjoy your trip."
Throughout the journey, we felt not only informed about astrophysics and geology but also emotionally caught up and personally involved in the story that was being told. Our tour ended with a film about super volcanoes in the Dome Theatre, narrated by Benedict Cumberbatch. It culminated with glorious aerial footage over Yellowstone Park (which, we were told, is overdue for a super volcano eruption). The big question we were left with was: When the next cataclysmic event occurs, will we be destroyed, or adapt and survive?
With this in mind, coming out into the shop is like a major cultural shift! Is it really worth buying The Tardis cushion, in the great scheme of things? But with such a high quality array of time and universe related products for sale, I'm sure the shop has no problem in thriving despite questions like this!
