Science Museum

Ignite curiosity in science and maths through more than 50 hands-on exhibits and immersive experiences. A must-do for KS2 and KS3.

Inspired by power of wondering, Wonderlab: The Equinor Gallery enriches learning across the curriculum themes of Forces, Electricity, Light, Sound, Matter, Space and Maths.

A visit to this gallery is a must for KS2 and KS3 students, and includes: high-energy shows, live experiments at our Chemistry Bar, live lightning demos at our giant Tesla coil, and our brilliant Explainers to facilitate engagement.

Exhibits will encourage students to be curious, to look closely at details and to be creative—skills that are invaluable to scientists. To help you and your students make the most of your visit and keep the conversation going back at school, download the gallery guide.

We will allocate your group into time slots allowing 60 minutes in the gallery, Time slots start every 15 minutes and admit 70 people (pupils and teachers) at a time, so we may need to split your group across sessions.

With a rolling admission across the day there will be other schools and members of the public alongside your group. This gives Wonderlab a very lively atmosphere. If you are visiting with a party of SEND students who would benefit from a less busy environment, please check the calendar below for SEND dates when we endeavour to offer additional support for students' needs.

This page is for educational groups; for general visitor information, please see the main gallery page.
