2. Science museums and centres bring science to life, creating a space for learning and allowing people to interact with science in a way that is both fun and engaging. There are over 80 science centres, museums and discovery centres in the UK.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 interactives 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! Read five reviews of the Science Museum in London and say what it houses and why people like it.
A brilliant museum. I went to Parc de la Villette last year to the French museum of Science and Industry and I have to say it failed to live up to that! Lovely atmosphere. I especially loved the upper floors on the history of medicine...a budding dentist, I horrified a group of American tourists by spending a good deal of time observing Victorian dental equipment. Also the shop is awesome. My partner and me are real nerds and the thought of a mug with the periodic table on sets us off...Allow time for the shop!!!
The Science museum is vast and free to visit. We went in early June primarily to see the Pixar exhibit which was fee paying. We then spent a few hours getting a taste of the rest of the museum. We've been to science museums all over the U.S. and Europe and I'd say this is one of the best. The museum is massive, with sections dedicated to aeronautics, medicine, space, computers, etc. We visited some of the exhibits regarding the development of flight and some models of the early trains. You can see the Stephenson's Rocket, the world's first train. This is an opportunity for visitors to see science come alive.

It chronicles the development of science and industry in Great Britain over the centuries, with an extensive collection from biochemistry and photography to meteorology and astronomy. There are several interactive exhibits. It is also right next door to the Natural History Museum. If you combine the two you can have a very full day!
The Science Museum is a firm school holiday favourite with our family. In this day and age it's pretty tough to find a cheap day out that keeps kids engaged all day. The Science Museum never fails. There are so many hands on activities and free, entertaining yet informative shows. OK, so it might not meet expectations for the real science buffs out there but as a family day out it is great – and you might just learn something too! I would suggest getting there by public transport as it's so easily accessible from South Kensington tube and you won't have to spend ages finding somewhere to park.. Enjoy!
We visited the Science museum this weekend again and I love it! The computer games exhibition is fantastic, not to mention the fact that I got to play on the eagerly anticipated Nintendo Wii for free! But what you MUST not miss is the amazing IMAX cinema. Worth every single penny of the fee it simply amazes me every time.
