central hall

Sure there is no cage with tigers! Science is not a circus, after all. No tricks or distractions, only knowledge, logic and...entertainment. Perhaps, this is the only thing that unites them.

As part of the international Museum Night, the science museum “Elemento” will conduct an unusual event, which will show and prove that science can be comprehensible, exciting and entertaining! This evening the guests of the scientific show program will be offered to enter the Faraday cage and be surrounded by giant lightning of a Tesla coil.

The director of the museum, Oleg Em, said: "Come with your family! The Faraday cage is a unique opportunity to see the lightning at arm’s length. This will be interesting!"

The show will take place on 19 May, from 21:30 to 23:00, in the central hall of the National Library of Belarus.

Entrance fee: children and adults – 8 BYN.

Tickets to the scientific show are available at the ticket office of the National Library of Belarus, on May 19, from 10:00 to 18:00.
