Michael Faraday Museum

Founded in 1799 to disseminate the knowledge of science, the Royal Institute has remained at the forefront of scientific discovery ever since. The building was given an impressive £22m revamp in 2008, after which a crowd-pleasing café made an appearance, as well as three floors dedicated to the stuff of science. Here you’ll discover all about experiments, including the first electrical transformer, a prototype Davy lamp and a print of the first transatlantic telegraph. There’s also a replica of Michael Faraday’s laboratory, alongside RI scientists going about their daily business. The RI is most famous for their Christmas lectures series, so try and time a visit to coincide with these.
