Situated in the heart of museum land on Exhibition Road in South Kensington, the Science Museum is the perfect family day out! Admission is free (some special activities and exhibitions have additional costs) and the museum is laid out across 4 fully accessible floors all bursting with scientific wonder and discovery, featuring hands-on and interactive technology to inspire and enlighten visitors of all ages!

As the home of human ingenuity, the Science Museum celebrates scientific, technological and medical achievements from across the globe. The Museum's interactive galleries, touring exhibitions, IMAX 3D Cinema, year round programme of live and holiday events and its world-class collection – including some of the earliest remaining steam engines - all aim to make sense of the science that shapes lives, inspiring visitors with iconic objects, award-winning exhibitions and incredible stories of scientific achievement!

For knee-high explorers and mini-scientists, The Garden in the basement of the Museum is the ideal first stop for hands-on fun! From giant tubes that carry whispers to a flying saucer that radiates white light, it's perfect for 3 to 6 year olds to discover science through play.

Older kids have a range of galleries, simulators and activities on offer to entertain, delight and surprise! From a full-sized replica of 'Eagle' – the lander that took astronauts Armstrong and Aldrin to the Moon in 1969 in the Exploring Space Gallery – to the first Apple computer, the museum is jam packed with enough technology to blow the youngest and most inquisitive of minds!

Scientific discovery is of course thirsty work and so for snack seekers and rumbling tummies there are also a host of onsite catering facilities to suit all tastes and budgets.
