More details

The Science Museum London probably one of the best science theme museums all over the world. The Science Museum attracts more than 3.3 million people every year. Therefore, it is proudly now Europe's most visited science and technology museum. The museum is located in South Kensington and can be traced all the way back to 1857 when the South Kensington Museum opened at what is now the Victoria & Albert Museum. The decision to move the science and engineering collections of the V&A Museum to a separate location in 1909 meant the Science Museum was naturally born. Today the Museum accommodates more than 300,000 objects on its seven floors. All those objects have been carefully categorized by different topics such as electricity, nuclear power, technology, medicine, photography, food, transportation, and much more. Our tour will start from the top floor. In level 3, from mankind’s earliest dreams of flight, through to the Wright brothers and early adventurers, to the jumbo jet and the wide-body aeroplanes of today, you will discover the history of flight experiencing an amazing HD 3D flight simulator as well as hair rising live science shows (if available during the time of the visit) to help you understand the science and maths that build our world. You can also try the Space Descent VR to experience the breathtaking 400 km journey to the earth surface. In Level 2 you will visit some current exhibitions, The Clockmakers' Museum with its unique collection from the present day. Next is Mathematics, The Winton Gallery where you can explore how mathematics is connected to our daily lives. Proceeding to Information Age where we will discover 200 years of innovation in information and communication technology and how it has significantly changed our lives from the first wireless transatlantic communication to the dawn of digital HDTV. Time to explore our unique and fragile atmosphere that contains an interactive gallery related to the story of the Earth’s changing climate from the past to today. Once you reach Level 1, you will examine the Challenge of Materials that transforms our world, who am I where you can explore how genetic codes can create someone’s identity. Level 1 will soon host an extensive Medicine Collection. This will be embedded in our Science Museum Tour when it is finished. Next level is zero, ground level, maybe the best level of the museum. Here you will explore making the Modern World that contains the most iconic objects from Apollo 10 to the first Apple computer, Energy Hall where you will discover steam-propelled British industry and technology. Do you wish to see a real moon rock? If yes, follow the guide leading you to immaculate Exploring Space Gallery where you can also observe the real satellites and rockets. In level Zero you will also discover Pattern Pod if your group has young kids, Tomorrow’s World, IMAX 3D Theatre that is considered one of the largest screens throughout the U.K. Final touch for this level would be Legend of Apollo, closer approach on US’s Apollo mission to the Moon in museum’s 3D motion effects theatre. It’s a must-do activity in the Science Museum. For the young members of your Group, we will invite them to the Garden where they can enjoy while playing their way through sound, light, water and construction. Here they will learn how to observe, explore and draw conclusions whilst playing with their friends. There is also a play area in the basement. Lastly, The Secret Life of the Home gallery would be the gallery where the young generation will discover the evaluation of daily household objects.
