Attraction Information

Get hands-on and get lost in this interactive scientific adventure at The Science Museum in London.

Home to human ingenuity this is a mini scientists dream. One step for man and one giant leap for mankind will find you exploring the day away in the space gallery. Computer fanatics will love seeing the very first Apple computer model. Mini scientists can make their way to the basement garden and learn through playing. From giant whispering tubes to bright light saucers they will love discovering the wonders of science. The museum is jam-packed with enough technology to blow the youngest and most inquisitive of minds!

Fly the skies on the flight stimulator, enter new worlds in the IMAX 3D cinema or visit the motion theatre. Scientific discovery is, of course, thirsty work and so for snack seekers and rumbling tummies, there are also plenty of food stops to settle cravings. From the deep blue diner to the shake shack there’s something to suit you all. Plus, if you've always wanted to explore a museum after dark, then you'll love The Science Museum's 'Astronights' sleepovers!
