Summer at the Science Museum

Visit the Museum this holiday for an action-packed programme of events and activities

Don't miss out on our fun-packed workshops and events this summer. Design your own game controller, listen to the story of a star, and explore frozen landscapes 10,000 years before modern civilization. Plus, you can take a thrill ride with the Red Arrows, explore our daily science shows, visit the Information Age gallery to learn how today's amazing communication technology came to be, and much, much more.

We're staying open until 19.00 (last entry 18.15) from 20 July – 2 September 2016, except for 27 July and 31 August when we close at 18.00 for our monthly Lates.
