    I used to love this museum growing up. However, now it feels all the interesting absorbing installations are being replaced by touch screen games and interactive screens. It's a shame.

    Such a muddled space. Great content but poorly exhibited. And the brand is a bit dated.

    Brian · September 13
  • Jenny L.

    A lot of things to see, like engine and machines about the modern age. Visit the Natural History Museum nearby as well!

    Jenny Law · September 4
  • Iman F.

    Always loved it here but it gets a little tedious for an adult. Nonetheless it's definitely worth a visit- the ground floor space room is really cool and their shop is nice.

    I know it's #free but u expected a lot more. Not a great deal has changed during the past decade. Not a fantastic place for younger kids

    It is a very interesting place.

    Computing and technology gallery is great but beware, if you're over 40 having so many childhood memories on display is a museum can be unnerving!

    Interactive museum, even adults turn into kids again. Go to the top floor for Red Arrow flight simulator. Their "Lates" is very well run, fun, and full of free workshops!

    There are plenty of things to learn at Science museum; does not matter how old you are. Very comprehensive exhibitions. Free WiFi. I loved the communication part with first Cray super calculator.

    David · June 28
  • Kuba G.

    Might not amaze older science students, but it's still great fun to test some interactive exhibitions.

    A great experience! Nonetheless, the amount of objects displayed may be too much for one visit for some of the sections.

    My favorite museum in London, prepare to have your mind blown. I could spend a week here.

  • Leo D.

  • Ksenia G.

    Don't you even try going there on weekends. This amount of children will eat you alive.

  • Henrique X.

    Some exhibitions are sponsored by private companies and seem to be a bit biased towards promoting it's activities.

    Great museum! Too crowded during weekends, tho it looks great for families with children. Lots of cool interactive stuffs, but be sure to bring your hand sanitizer. :D

    6 floors of exhibits! Especially love level 3 with the flying machines. There's also a simulator ride and 3D show on flying.

  • Bhan L.

    Huge place. Lvl 5 is a bit confusing to get to. Ask a volunteer! Mummies, spaceships, rockets, planes and more!

    3d Imax movies are worth seing, especially the mysteries of the unseen world. We spent a full sunday with a child and couldnt see all. Lots if fun activities for kids.

    Some of the floors have really amazing things, while others are mostly interactive screens (some of them don't even work). Can be visited in under two hours.

    I LOVE THIS PLACE - great exhibitions! Nothing you can't learn from the science museum

  • Clementina

    Amazing! Their display of aircrafts and engines are breathtaking. Also communications, maths and computing. Avoid it on early weekdays, annoying shouting and running school kids everywhere

    Always enjoyed it as a kid and still do as an adult.

  • Hugh P.

    Garden area amazing, a hidden gem in London. Eating area in LG was understaffed, over priced and confusing.

    Hugh Porter · March 1
  • Mag K.'s actually kind of boring. If you've been to any science museum in US you'll find nothing interesting here (accept maybe the retro cars and the Imax theater)

    Mag Ke · February 28
  • YOUhome

    The Science Museum includes exhibitions covering all aspects of science and technology and is great fun for the kids, especially with special exhibitions out of School hours.

    Went to the Wildlife Photography Exhibition with pre-booked tickets. The exhibition was beautiful but it was just too busy. It was nearly impossible to see certain photos.

    Anne Wal · February 22
  • Michael F.

    Amazing place to go check out, possibly too big, but even so they give you plenty of seats to sit on! Would take best part of half a day or even an entire day to check out all the stuff they have here

    The free tour in the space section was very interesting.

    Z P · February 11
  • Z P.

    The 'space tour' at 2pm (not sure if it's on every day is free and the volunteer tourguide (Joe) was very friendly & informative. He even extended the tour from 30mins to almost an hour. Nice man. :)
