Returning to World Museum for its 10th anniversary, having been seen by a more than a million people across Europe, Eye For Colour is a visual feast of an exhibition that will alert the senses and stimulate the mind.

This inspiring family-friendly exhibition is packed with hands-on exhibits and interactive displays, exploring the endless ways in which colour shapes our world. 

In the exhibition you can find out:

  • how colour is formed
  • how artists use colour in creativity
  • how animals use colour as camouflage - changing colour to blend in with their environment
  • how some birds and reptiles use colour to stand out from the crowd - altering their colour to attract a mate
