Christmas at the Science Museum

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

Listen to the story of a star’s lifetime, watch Santa take on a Snowman in our IMAX Theatre and discover the science behind Christmas in our festive physics workshop. Then stop by our new gallery, Information Age, to explore how our lives have been transformed by information and communication technologies over the past 200 years.

We're staying open until 19.00 (last entry 18.15) every day this holiday from 20 December 2014 – 4 January 2015, although our interactive galleries will be closing at 18.00. We will be closed from the 24–26 December 2014.
