Science Museum

Do you want to know how you would sound if you were the opposite sex, make art with light rays or see the Apollo 10 command module that has orbited the earth? If you have an inquisitive mind, the Science Museum will inspire you to look further and educate you in lively and thought provoking ways. The museum is located in South Kensington, which has been home to scientific legends such as Isambard Kingdom Brunel, a genius in the field of engineering; Sir Benjamin Thompson, who developed a new theory of heat convection; and Rosalind Franklin, whose pioneering work formed the basis of our understanding of DNA. 

 

Founded in 1857, the museum now has over 300,000 artifacts, which include many of the important scientific breakthroughs discovered by British scientists. Crick and Watson's DNA model, which decoded some of the mysteries of life; Stephenson's Rocket, which revolutionised transportation technology; and Charles Babbage's Difference Engine, a predecessor to pocket calculators we use today, are all fascinating examples of Britons who have changed the way we view the world. For budding astronauts there is also a huge gallery dedicated to space exploration, complete with official rockets and space suits.

 

The museum also has a wide array of interactive games and installations to appeal to kids and big kids alike. Their most popular gallery, the Launch Pad, is a fully interactive experience where visitors can build bridges, take photo-negatives of themselves, experience centrifugal force, make gaseous forms do their bidding and become a part of a grain sorting machine. Alongside regular talks and events, 'Science Night' sleepovers, a flight simulator, an enormous IMAX cinema and a 4D cinematic experience where you can 'smell' space; this makes a great family day out. The museum also has a restaurant, shop and a range of cafes and there is disability access throughout. Visitors should note that whilst the exhibition is free entry, you have to purchase a ticket for some exhibits and the IMAX and 4D experience are not suitable for younger children.

 

The museum is also close to the Natural History and Victoria & Albert Museums. With so much culture in one place, it's a great place to visit and stay, especially for first time tourists who want to see London's sights without too much hassle. Accommodation options include the Brompton Road Hotel, which offers low cost, comfortable rooms with traditional English charm, just five minutes walk away. The Gainsborough Hotel in Queensberry Place, also has very reasonable room rates, offering guests a country manor experience in the heart of the city. If you fancy a home away from home, Harrington Serviced Apartments offer self-contained, contemporary, stylish units where a kitchenette and laundry can help you to stretch your budget further. For something a little pricier but slightly more special, the Egerton Hotel is about 10 minutes walk away and offers opulent rooms and top notch service. The museum is located near South Kensington tube station, which has direct links to Victoria, Paddington, Heathrow and King's Cross St Pancras Stations; so can be easily reached from major transport hubs.

 

Visitors should note that whilst the museum is generally easy to navigate, some of its best exhibits can be a little hard to find or easily overlooked.  We recommend that you make time for a visit to the fantastic Listening Post, an artistic installation, which takes a sneaky look at the way we communicate in the modern world, by displaying snippets of information borrowed from internet forums and comments in real time. It's an amazing look at human interaction in a globalised society and an enlightening psychological map of a community's public persona. The fourth and fifth floors of the exhibition are only accessible via one lift and so visitors tend to stick to the first three floors, but the upper floors contain a fascinating collaboration with the Wellcome Exhibition, delving into medical history. It can be gruesome - exhibits include a mummy and medical implements - but it shows how advanced our healing capabilities are now and modern visitors will be thankful that they didn't have to pay a visit to a doctor before 1900. With all of this under one roof, the museum is a testament to man's thirst for knowledge and you will definitely leave with more answered questions than not.
