The inventors of the above exhibits will explain their invention to the visitors of the Museum (the schools, the general public etc) on the first day of the exhibition (28th Jan 2004). Since this is a school holiday and the Museum is free for admission to the public on this day, we anticipate many people will come to see the exhibition.
