Its all about sex baby

Why do we fancy the people we do? How do we define ourselves? Are we monogamous? What do animals mate with? Science Museum Lates is exploring the science behind sexuality – and having a bit of fun along the way. Plus all the regular highlights of live music, the Punk Science comedy show 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 Churchill’s wartime scientists to childhood.

See what we have planned for the coming months

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.


The Science Museum Comedy Club

Come and meet some of their cleverest, most hilarious friends at their hybrid Comedy Club. There will be demonstrations of remarkable scientific concepts, intriguing theories and fascinating, rarely seen objects from the Science Museum's collection. All this with top award-winning comedians putting the fun into fundamental physics.
