Step back in time to climates of the past, look at what's happening to the weather today and see how we can affect the climate of the future.

Come and explore the hottest topic in town in our interactive exhibition. Create your own tornado and learn why they happen. Discover fun and fascinating facts, including how the weather is measured, why we experience dramatic changes in the weather and how we are contributing to climate change. Find out what you can do to help tackle it.

Visitors using the hands-on interactives in the Whatever the Weather Exhibition.Activities, events, workshops and talks for children, families and adults will run throughout the exhibition - see our What's On page for details.

With unique objects, amazing displays and the Museum of Croydon to explore too, why wait for a rainy day? Why not visit the brand new Museum of Croydon & Riesco Galleries whilst you're here. Entrance to both these galleries is also FREE.

We also want to hear your weather stories.

  • Have you had a weird weather experience? For example, a particularly hot summer, snowy winter, floods, winds or storms?

  • Do you have any objects that remind you of a strange weather event in Croydon that you can lend us for the exhibition?

If so, why not let us know? Use the 'Your Story' link at the top of this page to tell us your story or about an object. Please put 'weather' at the start of the title box and don't forget to leave your contact details if you would like us to get back to you.
