Science Museum, London
Believe it or not the Science Museum in London has been going since 1857, so it’s no surprise that it’s one of the city’s most popular attractions. T’isn’t half food for thought, we can tell you – there’s just SO much here and when you leave, you come away knowing at least a little about things you’d never even though about! There are five galleries dedicated to the history of medicine alone, with other exhibitions including Exploring Space, Mathematics: The Winton Gallery, Making The Modern World, and Flight, where you can see the De Havilland Gipsy Moth that Amy Johnson flew from England to Australia in 1930. Some of it is mind boggling, some of it is thought provoking, but it’s all very, very interesting. Take the family, there’s plenty you can all do together – activities, films, trails, and an interactive gallery. There are 5 cafes and a picnic area, and something that’s bound to take up quite a bit of time – a shop.
Free admission, though some of the special exhibitions and events require a ticket.
