Half-term at the Science Museum

Visit the Museum for an action-packed week of events and activities

Hear the story of how the telephone was invented, get to grips with slime mould and drop in to one of our science shows for an intergalactic journey through space. Then stop by our new gallery, Engineer Your Future, and find out if you’ve got the problem solving, big-thinking, team-working skills to be an engineer of tomorrow.

We're staying open until 19.00 (last entry 18.15) every day during half-term, from 14 February 2015 – 22 February 2015, although our interactive galleries will be closing at 18.00.
