Age of Exploration Zone

Age of Exploration Zone

The Renaissance is coming and boats are setting out to explore all corners of the globe, while scientists uncover amazing truths.

In the period between 1200-1700 CE, the world became more connected than ever before, and the exploration wasn’t just around the globe – it extended to scientific discoveries too. The Late Middle Ages gave way to the Renaissance. In the 14th century, the Black Death spread across Europe, killing 50% of the population. By the 17th century, the scientific method as we understand it today – structured, rigorous investigation – was beginning to take hold.

Step into London in 1666 to see how the Great Fire started, visit Shakespeare’s Globe, or travel to Russia and be amazed by the spectacular St Basil’s Cathedral.
