For unique wedding ideas, the stunning Energy Hall will delight your guests with a welcome message posted inside the Energy Ring – dramatically suspended from the ceiling – or photos of the happy couple displayed on four central plasma screens.

In Making the Modern World your guests can dine amongst original fascinating icons that shaped society, including Stephenson’s Rocket and the Ford Model T car; or dance the night away beneath the breathtaking icons of aviation history in the Flight gallery.

With a selection of interactive children’s galleries and rides available, there are also plenty of unique wedding ideas to keep younger guests entertained.

The Science Museum also caters for a range of other private celebrations, such as engagement, anniversary or retirement parties and bar or bat mitzvahs.
