dc.description.abstract The present paper describes the design of teaching materials that are used as learning tools in school visits to a science museum. An exhibition on 'A century of the Special Theory of Relativity', in the Kutxaespacio Science Museum, in San Sebastian, Spain, was used to design a visit for first- year engineering students at the university and assess the learning that was achieved. The first part of the paper presents the teaching sequence that was designed to build a bridge between formal teaching and the exhibition visit. The second part analyses the potential of the exhibition and the aforementioned teaching sequence to influence the students' knowledge of three aspects of the Special Theory of Relativity. The results obtained show that the design of the visit, with both pre- visit and follow-up activities, was effective as a means of increasing students' understanding and stimulating their ability to argue scientifically.
