A world renowned museum, famous for its historic collections, awe-inspiring galleries and inspirational exhibitions.
The Science Museum is the most visited science and technology museum in Europe. With over 15,000 objects on display, you can get up close to objects such as the Apollo 10 command capsule and Stephenson’s Rocket.
The museum was founded in 1857 as part of the South Kensington Museum, and gained independence in 1909. Their interactive galleries bring to life first scientific principles and contemporary science debates.
