Winter sport indoors in adrenaline-filled exhibition at the Museum of Technology

By on February 10, 2017

Time to polish up the ski goggles and dust off the slalom skills. Just in time for sports holiday opens the Technical Museum Winter Games – an exhibition where you challenge yourself or friends in a snowball throwing, figure skating, curling and 10 other winter activities – without cold feet.

Compete in the slalom and biathlon, control bob-sled so that it go as fast as possible in the course, throwing dot with snowballs, building an igloo or try ski jumping. In the Winter Games which open on to the Technical Museum February 18 is everything that belongs to a perfect winter holiday – but no frozen feet, mile-long lift queues and speed happy off-piste skiers of course.

In addition to offering the opportunity to experience and try different winter activities, the exhibition shows how the technology behind them works. How can such skaters use centrifugal force to get the perfect pirouette? Does it matter how you wax your skis? And how stressful is it to sit in the commentator booth during an ice hockey final? 14 interactive installations gives the chance to sharpen the technique before the ski trip or to simply stay put and enjoy sports holiday in the town.

In the exhibition, you will also be able to learn about avalanches, how to avoid them and what to do if an accident occurs. You will also learn more about why it is so important to protect your head with a helmet on the ski slopes.

Winter Games is a touring exhibition created in collaboration between the four Nordic Science Center – VilVite in Bergen, Experimentarium in Copenhagen, Heureka in Helsinki and the Technical Museum in Stockholm. After the stop in Stockholm is the exhibition prepared for a worldwide tour.
