Without doubt a visit to the Science Museum in London is a superb experience for all ages. It is just a question of what to look at first?  There is so much to see and do.


The Science Museum has opened Wonderlab: The Statoil Gallery which invites visitors to step into the clever shoes of a scientist!

The £6 million permanent gallery features unique exhibits, specially-commissioned artworks, and explosive demonstrations to inspire visitors of all ages to wonder at the science and mathematics that shape our lives.

With over 50 exhibits across seven zones, visitors to the gallery will explore the incredible phenomena that occur around us each and every day.

Visitors can also ride on a giant rotating model of the solar system to learn why we have seasons, experience forces on a large friction slide, and take part in live science shows full of electricity, rockets, space and more.

The Museum also has a film celebrating the power of a child’s wonder, featuring the famous voice of Sir David Attenborough.

Visitors can also attempt to understand our wondrous world by seeing a number of famous faces including Sir Patrick Stewart, Pharrell Williams, Professor Brian Cox, Lauren Laverne, Theo James, NASA’s Charlie Bolden and Olympians Jonny and Alistair Brownlee.

A visit to the Science Museum during the school Christmas holidays will make a great day out for the whole family.
