Be part of the action in our 3D IMAX Cinema

Experience the Science Museum in a whole new dimension from Thursday 25 July to Sunday 1 September 2013.

Make your very own 3D glasses, create a pop up version of the Museum to take home and watch a 3D film in our IMAX Cinema. Take part in design workshops to see your creation 3D printed and step inside our scanning booth for a chance to have a 3D printed version of yourself displayed in our exhibition which opens later in the year. You can also experience the thrill of our 4D and 3D simulators and pick up a family trail to discover 3D objects in our collection.
