Science Museum

The Science Museum is as much about learning scientific laws as it is about discovering its history. Millions of school children have passed through its doors over the years, proving to be a valuable additional tool used by hundreds of schools in and around London. The exhibits have evolved over the years to become more interactive, encourage both young and old to participate and discover the wonders of the scientific world.

The museum itself was opened in 1857 and features over a quarter of a million scientific items to explore and examine. Some of the key objects on display include the Boulton and Watt rotative beam engine, the oldest in the world. The Black Arrow R4 launch vehicle sits proudly on display and was once the national satellite launcher. Enjoy the spacesuit worn by the first Briton in space, or reflect on Caroline Herschel’s groundbreaking 1795 telescope.
