Sound Bathing at the Museum
Now for something a bit different



Slow down and experience the relaxing benefits of sound bathing. Bring a blanket or cushion and lie on the floor among the museum exhibits. As the atmospheric sounds of chimes, ocean drums and bird song wash over you, feel your body and mind melt into a state of calm relaxation. Sound bathing can reduce stress and anxiety and help you to become more mindful of your surroundings.



Following 45-minutes of peaceful sound bathing, musician Simon Wood will perform on his hang drums. It's the tonal range and expressive, meditative sound that makes the hang drum such a beautiful instrument. Simon will build the energy to a crescendo, leaving you feeling uplifted and restored, ready to face the world again.
