Superflex - A Cockroach Tour of the Science Museum

  • 2010 - present
  • Participatory art event

Constantly beetling away with new discoveries and inventions, we humans are a curious breed... or that's how we might appear to the group of cockroaches recently spotted exploring the Science Museum's galleries.

Find out what it's like to be one of the planet's true survivors. Having outlived the dinosaurs, what will they make of our obsessions with speed, time... and burning things?

Put yourself in their shells. Sign up with your friends and family for A Cockroach Tour of the Science Museum and get a quirky and inquisitive take on the human race.

The Cockroach Tours are every Saturday and Sunday, and during Lates each month. Check the calendar now.
