Three school children visit a dusty library to research the story of 'The Dark Ages'. What they find changes their world view dramatically as ingenious inventors and pioneers of science and culture are vividly brought to life.
Starring Oscar-winning legend Sir Ben Kingsley in the role of The Librarian, this astounding movie provides an eye-opening introduction to the 1001 Inventions initiative and is the centrepiece for the global touring exhibition.
Come and enjoy the movie in full widescreen and surround sound at the Science Museum in London (until the 30th June 2010).
Entry is free for both children and adults.
The 1001 Inventions exhibition opened at London's Science Museum on January 21st 2010. Since that time it became one of the most popular exhibition's that this prestigious venue has ever hosted.
An average of 3,000 visitors a day visited the exhibition, and the feedback from the audience has been overwhelmingly positive.
This video gives a brief introduction to the exhibition's current residency. 1001 Inventions was at the Science Museum in London from 21st January to 30th June 2010 followed by Istanbul in Sultan Ahmet from 18th August to 05th October and now the exhibition is showing its glory at the New York hall of Science till April 2011.
1001 Inventions is a global educational initiative that promotes awareness of the scientific and cultural achievements of Muslim civilisation, during the thousand year period from the 7th century onwards, and how those contributions helped build the foundations of our modern world.
Working with the world's leading academics, 1001 Inventions engages with the public through educational media and interactive global exhibitions, in order to highlight the shared cultural and technological inheritance of humanity.
Since it launched in March 2006, 1001 Inventions has successfully educated more than a million people, promoted cross-cultural understanding and strengthened social cohesion.
1001 Inventions was created by the academic Foundation for Science, Technology and Civilisation (FSTC) with support from the British Government.
