Science Museum

Europe’s most visited science and technology museum sees over 3 million visitors every year.  Now located on Exhibition Road, London’s Science Museum started life in 1857, as part of the South Kensington Museum – a space where part of the Victoria and Albert Museum now stands.

The Science Museum is spread over seven floors with interactive galleries displaying everything from medical history to patterns and developments in contemporary science. The 3D and 4D simulators are a real treat, giving visitors the chance to experience what it’s like to fly with the Red Arrows.

Younger children are catered for with the Pattern Pod, an exhibition dedicated to the under 8s, and the Launch Pad, a great interactive gallery exploring basic scientific principles.  Contrastingly, the Dana Centre is an adult only area, offering free lectures and performances.
