Michael Faraday Museum

The Michael Faraday Museum looks back at the changing face of science with the Royal Institution since 1799. It was first opened in 1973 and dedicated to Faraday – a scientist who offered significant contributions to our understanding of electrochemistry and electromagnetism. The Royal Institution has been the leading force in British scientific discovery ever since its formation over 200 years ago.

The exhibition features a recreation of Faraday’s famous 1850 laboratory as its centrepiece, with three floors of scientific history laid out for the public to learn and discover. The Christmas lectures are a particular treat, disseminating current scientific findings with an entertaining twist.
