Time Machines: the past, the future, and how stories take us there

10:00am to 5:00pm, Palace Green Library

This exhibition asks, How big is time? And what will the future be like?
The sheer enormity of time is a mind-bending concept - one which humans have always tried to measure and understand. Step through a portal and journey through time as we reveal how advances in science allowed authors to create stories that transport us to the distant past, parallel universes, and future worlds.
