What does an inch measure? The new play-based path called Weight and Measures, dedicated to units of measurement, is intended to find out and understand some basic concepts underlying metrology, the science that studies measurements and their applications. This goal is achieved through interactive exhibits, fun facts and examples in everyday life.
