“Cursed, cursed creator! Why did I live?”
—Frankenstein’s Creature

Join us this Easter for an extra special festival celebrating the 200th anniversary of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein or the Modern Prometheus.

Through immersive theatrical events, hands-on activities and experimental storytelling we explore the ethical, scientific and technical questions surrounding whether or not we should create ‘life’. 


Drop-in sessions

Create Your Own Creature

11.30–13.00 and 14.30–16.00, Tomorrow's World Gallery

Let your imagination run wild with guidance from real scientists, before creating your very own homage to the Frankenstein film for your creature to star in! 

First, you’ll build your creature from the inside out starting by making a wire frame skeleton. Next, you’ll flesh out your creation with modelling clay, and finally you can bring your creature to life using stop motion animation.

(Drop-in workshop suitable for all ages. Duration approximately 20 minutes. )

Meet Mary Shelley

11.00—16.00, Tomorrow's Worlds Gallery

Not read Frankenstein? No problem! Mary Shelley herself will be on hand to get you up to speed and answer all your questions. 

Cabinet of Curiosities

Get close to rarities from our collection and meet the Science Museum’s expert curators and some of their favourite objects.
