Where else can you find life-changing objects from Stephenson’s Rocket to the Apollo 10 command module, catch an immersive 3D movie, enjoy the thrills of a special effects simulator, introduce children to science with fun, hands-on interactive and encounter the past, present and future of technology in seven floors of galleries? At the Science Museum you can find all this and more!
The science museum covers five floors, so don’t expect to see it all in one day! Each floor looks at a different aspect of technology and science using displays and interactive information. The ground floor looks at vehicles and space exploration. The first floor is dedicated to food, gas, structural metals and communications. On the second floor you can learn about nuclear power, printing and computing. The third floor looks at photography and optics with electricity and the top two floors concentrate on the science of medicine. There are daily demonstrations and drama performances plus special exhibitions.
