At the Solar System area, visitors can learn about various topics relating to Earth and the Solar System including climate change, as well as features of planets in Solar System through impressive visuals.

 

At the Earth and Natural Resources space, an interactive sand table is set up with an aim to simulate renewable forms of energy attached to successful projects in Vietnam and the rest of the globe.

ExploraScience Quy Nhon also has areas for cafeterias, libraries or shops.

Director of the Binh Dinh Provincial Department of Science and Technologies, Le Cong Nhuong, said that ExploraScience Quy Nhon was put into trial operation in 2019 and had been open for free for some time.

"ExploraScience Quy Nhon had provided free-of-charge tour programs to exhibition rooms, scientific shows and outdoor activities," he said. "We are building a plan to collect tickets at the site."

Director of Binh Dinh Provincial Department of Tourism, Nguyen Van Dung said that ExploraScience is the first model of its kind in Vietnam and is expected to become a new, attractive destination of the province.

"We hope to receive not only children, young people but also people of all ages to come and learn about scientific issues," he said.
