Science Museum

You are here:

Early Birds is a relaxed morning for families with children who need a quieter environment to enjoy the Museum free of the hustle and bustle of the general public.

Taking place on selected Saturdays and Sundays across the year, we open the museum early at 08.00, and some of our interactive galleries remain available exclusively to booked Early Birds guests until 11.15.

As well as exploring some of the galleries you can enjoy a selection of fun workshops. Some of the loud noises are turned off, there are quiet areas for those needing to take a break, and additional information is provided before attending an Early Birds event.

All of these events are completely free and suitable for families with children under the age of 15, but registration is necessary. Booking opens about one month before the event.

Saturday 14 JULy

The theme for Early Birds on Saturday 14 July is Superbugs. Activities include creating a model bacteria, tours of the Superbugs exhibition, and animal talks with live animals. Prior to the event you will receive a Visual Story and a programme outline with more details to help you with your visit. 

Booking is now open,
