Welcome back

The Science Museum is now open. Book your free tickets to explore our incredible galleries and exhibitions this summer. 

Our museum tells the stories of the extraordinary human achievement and technological advances that have helped humanity overcome challenges throughout history. From Helen Sharman’s iconic space suit to Amy Johnson’s marvellous Gipsy Moth aeroplane, these incredible stories help ignite curiosity, encourage scientific endeavour and spark the imagination. 

Opening times: 

During school holidays the museum is open 10.00–18.00, seven days a week. The summer holidays run from Wednesday 21 July – Sunday 5 September 2021.

During term time, the museum is open Wednesday–Sunday, 10.00–18.00 (last entry 17.15).   

Galleries start to close 30 minutes before the museum closes.
