High up in the building a translucent airship seems to hang in the rafters. We can’t see it, smell it or taste it. We need it to breathe. There’s over 5,000 million, million tonnes of air on Earth. Create patterns with air cannons, feel the wind, play with a tornado and explore how sound is made, discover Air.

The Four Pavilions

The steel industry of South Yorkshire has its roots in Roman times when iron was made from rocks extracted from the EARTH. FIRE was used to smelt the iron ore and AIR was needed for combustion. The local rivers provided WATER for cooling and later powering machinery. The steel industry grew to dominate the area in the 19th and 20th centuries.

The four themes of AIREARTHFIRE and WATER are the inspiration for Magna’s interactive pavilions.
