Science Museum

The naked eye perceives only a fraction of what there is to see on Earth; we are surrounded by things that are either too fast, too slow or too small for us to observe. Unlock the secrets of this unseen world in this stunning IMAX 3D film.

Using time-lapse photography, electron microscopy and nanotechnology, Mysteries of the Unseen World takes a closer look at a universe of creatures, processes and phenomena you never even knew existed—such as the flight of a dragonfly, the bacteria living on our bodies and even the invisible rays of light which surround us all.

Visually stunning and rooted in cutting-edge research, the film will leave you in complete thrall. Book your tickets now and begin to understand the enormity of the world you can't see.

Did you know?

  • An IMAX 3D film is actually two films being projected perfectly in synchronisation with each other, one for each eye
  • An IMAX film is so heavy that a forklift is required to lift it in and out of position. If rolled out, the average IMAX film would measure around four miles
  • The IMAX screen is the height of four double-decker buses, and 64 taxis could be parked on top if it were laid flat
