Ancient mysteries. Recent discoveries. 


How did 25 tonnes of towering stones end up in a field in Wiltshire, England? What purpose did this awe-inspiring monument serve for an ancient civilisation? Why do some consider this monument to be magical or sacred?

This exhibition delves into the science, history and mythology of Stonehenge - discover the secrets of what it meant to the people who built it, and what it means to the world today.
