Childhood wonder

Wednesday 25 January

A time to think back...

Over 18s only

Come along to the Science Museum on 25 January and delve back in time to your childhood. 

What made you wonder? Remember a time when your eyes were wide and your mind was full, and racing with each new aspect of the world around you. 

Revisit your sense of scientific wonder at Wonderlab: The Statoil Gallery, as well as taking in laughter therapy, a scientific see-saw, toy car racing, voice Pong, bee home building and much, much more.

Plus, all the regular Lates highlights are waiting for you to enjoy, including live music and the best silent disco in town.

Science Museum Lates are adults–only, after-hours theme nights that take place in the Museum on the last Wednesday of every month. Each entry in this hugely popular ongoing series of events centres on a different theme: from sex to climate change, from big data to childhood.

Inspiring, enlightening and unbelievably good fun, Lates always draw a crowd, so we strongly suggest you arrive early to ensure the best chance of getting in. Be advised that you may have to queue before a timed event.

Full programme details will be available here soon
