What's There in Science Museum
The Eqinor Gallery
Do you love to think about anything and everything? Think outside of the box and have bounds of curiosity. At The Equinor Gallery, you will be encouraged to use your imagination and be inspired to observe the world in new and wonderful ways. There are 7 different zones to explore, interact and observe. From interactive galleries, getting hands-on in the chemistry bar, or exploring space. It's the perfect place for inquisitive minds.

Climate Change
Do you love the world, wish to tackle climate change and show everyone the beauty of Earth? Maybe Our Future Planet and the Carbon Capture Exhibition is for you. You'll discover innovative technologies that are being developed to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. You can attend climate talks, and learn about what climate scientists are working on and how the climate advances over time. This isn't just for adults but also an education exhibition for children too. 

Computer Technology
Computer fanatics will love seeing the very first Apple computer model! Mini scientists can make their way to the basement gallery 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 curious of minds! And with the fast acceleration of technology occurring in the world, there is always something new to discover and learn about.

Aircraft and Machinery
Take to the skies as you delve deep into the chronological history of aircraft and how we first soared high above. Get up close and personal to the magnificent aircraft on display there, like the Supermarine S6B racing seaplane! Visit the gallery and trace the complete history and achievements of aviation and more. You can also fly the skies on the flight simulator.

The Clockmakers Museum
Ever wanted to see the world's oldest collection of clocks and watches? Here at the Science Museum London, you can see this AND more! From the earliest clockmakers in Europe to how technology helped advance the mechanics of clocks. 

Enter new worlds in the IMAX 3D cinema or visit the motion theatre. Plus, if you've always wanted to explore a museum after dark, then you'll love The Science Museum's 'Astronights' sleepovers

Food & Drink
Scientific discovery is, of course, thirsty work so there are also plenty of food stops to settle cravings. From the Energy Cafe where you can grab some homemade cakes, award-winning coffee and some hot and cold meals. Or quench your thirst at the Shake Bar, with some delicious ice cream milkshakes and design your own ice cream tub! Enjoy a range of tasty salads, sandwiches, cakes and ice cream at The Diner and you can also bring your own food as there are plenty of picnic spots!
