A place to know about history of science. Great for the the science fans. From cars to space craft it is a place to visit to know how the world has changed in the last century through the in invention of science. It takes at least two hours to quickly look into the facts but recommend to spent 4 hours if you feel you are in the space of technology and innovation. Great place for family and kids for their learning and knowledge. Had a Cafe inside and equipped with a souvenir shop.

Two very distinct types of visitors come to the Science Museum: 1 – People with an interest in History and Science. 2 – People with small children. If you’re in group 1, stay clear of any areas that sound screechy, or have a collection of baby buggies outside. If you’re in group 2... Actually, it’s not worth giving advice to Group 2. They’re already in those areas, and they have no time to read this, nor anything else. At this museum, you’ll learn that nothing moves faster than light, and nothing moves slower than the lifts here. For this reason, most people stay on the ground floor, looking at steam engines and space stuff. Anyone who does manage to get into a lift, takes full advantage and goes all the way to the top, but at that height there’s not much to see except airplanes. I’ve been told there are some interesting medical exhibits up there, but they’re in rooms with magical entrances that only appear in leap years and when there’s a full moon. Some people assume the lifts are out of service, and use the stairs instead, but they generally only get one floor up, and then just look over the balcony at the same things they’d previously seen below. The rest of the museum is almost completely uninhabited and not even the staff go there anymore, but if you do have the energy and motivation to carry on, or even climb another flight of stairs, there are plenty of interesting things to see here.

Last time I went it was fantastic, but this time after paying the suggested £5 per person donation, it disappointed us all. There were too many things you had to pay for taking up about 50% of the museum. Lots of the animated or listening exhibits weren't working. We left bags here which was much cheaper to do than at the National history Museum, so that was good. I loved the Mathematics bit but really missed the former exhibition of the development of Medicine.

An amazing museum providing one with an opportunity to explore the history behind the man’s greatest achievements and ideas that govern today’s technology. The space section is informative, fun and overall a great experience. The Pattern Pod is a good place for kids to interact in order to learn and maybe even get interested in science in the first place. It is indeed a very nerd-friendly environment :)

Great place to go as a youth or tourist. Despite this, I have been many times now and it just doesn't seem so good after the first time. I highly recommend the interactive flight experiences on the 3rd floor and all interactive areas on the far side of the building. They never seem to disappoint.
